Abstract: The influence of content of the aprotic solvents (acetone and acetonitrile) on the yield and selectivity of glycidol, allyl glycidyl ether, and glycerol synthesis has been investigated. The changes of conversion of allyl alcohol and hydrogen peroxide were presented. In the epoxidation process of allyl alcohol with hydrogen peroxide glycidol and allyl glycidyl ether can be obtained with a high selectivity using the acetone content of 80 mass % in the reaction mixture. The decrease of acetone content results in the increase of selectivity of glycerol synthesis and the decrease of selectivity of glycidol and allyl glycidyl ether. Higher selectivities of glycidol and allyl glycidyl ether synthesis axe achieved when the process is run in the presence of acetone as a solvent.
