Abstract

A series of laboratory and modelling experiments on the oxidation of propene in the gas phase has been undertaken to determine conditions which give high yields of propene oxide. The conditions under which the experiments were conducted were 505-549 K and up to 4 bar pressure. It is proposed that propene oxide is formed from propene by reaction with several peroxy radicals including HO2 and CH3CO3. However, one of the more important radicals is hydroxypropylperoxy. Its reaction with propene, under these conditions

(107) HOCH2CHO2CH3 + C3H6 --> HOCH2CHOCH3 + C3H6O

is more important than concerted decomposition to formaldehyde and acetaldehyde. (C) 1995 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
