Abstract: The influence of process parameters on the epoxidation of 2-buten-1-ol with 30 % hydrogen peroxide using the titanium silicalite
TS-1 is presented. The studies were carried out under autogenic pressure (in autoclave). Methanol was used as a solvent in
this process. The influence of temperature, 2-buten-1-ol to hydrogen peroxide mole ratio, amount of solvent used, TS-1 catalyst
content, and reaction time on the reaction was studied. The major product of this reaction, 2,3-epoxybutan-1-ol (EB), has
numerous applications in chemical industry.
Keywords: 2,3-epoxybutan-1-ol - epoxidation - titanium silicalite
