Abstract

Alkene epoxidation with TBHP as an oxidising reagent using heterogeneous Mo(VI) catalyst is an environmentally friendly process since it eliminates acid waste and chlorinated by-products often associated with the conventional industrial method that uses stoichiometric peracid such as peracetic acid and m-chloroperbenzoic acid. Polybenzimidazole supported Mo(VI) complex, i.e., PBI.Mo has been successfully prepared, characterised and assessed for the epoxidation of 1,5-hexadiene in the presence of tert-butyl hydroperoxide (TBHP) as an oxidising reagent. A quadratic polynomial model has been developed, demonstrating the yield of 1,2-epoxy-5-hexene in four independent variables. The effects of different parameters such as reaction temperature, feed mole ratio of 1,5-hexadiene to TBHP, catalyst loading, and reaction time were studied. Re-sponse surface methodology (RSM) using Box-Behnken Design (BBD) was employed to study the interaction effect of different variables on the reaction response. This study presents the opti-mization of 1,5-hexadiene epoxidation in a batch reactor using TBHP as an oxidant and a poly-mer-supported Mo(VI) catalyst.
