Abstract

A series of cobalt and manganese catalysts supported on SBA-15 with different loading of Mn+2 and Co+2 were synthesized. These samples were characterized by SEM and XRD techniques. The catalytic activity of these samples was evaluated in the oxidation of ethylbenzene (EB) to produce acetophenone (AP) and benzoic acid (BA) in the liquid phase using tert-butylhydroperoxide (TBHP) as an oxidant. The effects of Co-Mn loading, TBHP: EB molar ratio and temperature on acetophenone and benzoic acid yields were studied by Box-Behnken experimental design to optimize the production of acetophenone and benzoic acid in liquid system.
