Epoxidation of crotyl alcohol in the presence of titanium silicalite Ti-MWW catalyst — the new and friendly method of 2,3-epoxybutane-1-ol synthesis

Epoxidation of crotyl alcohol (CA) with 30 wt% hydrogen peroxide over Ti-MWW catalyst has been studied with methanol as a solvent and at autogenic pressure. The influence of temperature in the range of 20-120°C, the molar ratio of CA/H2O2 1:1-5:1, methanol concentration 5-90 wt%, Ti-MWW catalyst concentration 0.0-5.0 wt% and the reaction time 5-300 min have been studied. The main product of CA epoxidation is 2,3-epoxybutane-1-ol (2,3EB1O), a compound with many applications.
