Table of Contents

Prospectives in selective liquid-phase oxidation with H2O2and O2. Catalytic oxidations in the manufacture of fine chemicals (R.A. Sheldon). Selective oxidation with Ti-silicalite (U. Romano, A. Esposito, F. Maspero, C. Nero and M. Clerici). Plus 21 other papers. Nontraditional approaches to reactions of heterogeneous selective oxidation. Eleven papers. Advances in C1-C5 alkane selective transformation. Selective oxidation of propane to acrolein and ammoxidation to acrylonitrile over Ag-doped bismuth vanadomolybdate catalysts (Y.-Ch. Kim, W. Ueda and Y. Moro-oka). Fluidized bed oxidation of n-butane: A new commercial process for maleic anhydride (G.
Stefani, F. Budi, C. Fumagalli and G.D. Suciu). Plus 29 other papers. Electro- and photo-oxidation. Six papers. New aspects of the mechanism and surface reactivity of selective oxidation catalysts. Twenty-one papers. Author index. Subject Index.


This volume describes state-of-the-art advances in fundamental and applied aspects of partial selective oxidation in homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis, including electrochemical and photo-oxidation. Comprising 93 papers, this book will provide a valuable set of data on reactions of selective oxidation which will be extremely useful to catalyst and related practitioners, whether fundamentalists or highly applied, and to process engineers who wish to evaluate current findings in this field. The wide-range approach to reactions of selective oxidation will disseminate knowledge in specialized areas of selective oxidation, serve as a springboard for new ideas and encourage innovation and creativity.

Being an up-to-date reference source for all those studying in this field, this book should be on the bookshelf of all applied and academic research centres involved in the functionalization of molecules by selective oxidation.
