Hydrogen peroxide is generated by oxidation of a secondary alcohol, and the solution of the hydrogen peroxide in the secondary alcohol is used as the reaction medium for the ammoxidation of cyclohexanone by reaction with ammonium hydroxide in the presence of a titanium silicalite catalyst to produce cyclohexanone oxime, a caprolactam precursor. The ketone produced as a coproduct is recycled back to the secondary alcohol by hydrogenation.

Dec. 23, 1993 Cont.-in-part of U.S. 5,354,875 The epoxidation of olefinic compounds using hydroperoxides, especially aqueous solutions of H,O,, is effected in high yield and with good selectivity in the presence of a catalyst that is a mixture of small particles (average size ~0.5 p, preferably SO.3 p) of titania and a titanosilicalite. Small particle size is essential in a catalyst with good activity and selectivity. The catalyst mixture is prepared by impregnating small particles of high-purity TiO, with a Ti source, for example, titanocene or Ti butoxide, and a source of silica, for example, a silicate, in a solvent, heating to evaporate the solvent and cause crystallization of the titanosilicalite, and drying to form a solid.

A hydrocarbon feedstock is reformed in a reaction zone containing a catalyst composed of a platinum-group metal and a nonacidic L zeolite, and the reformate is then isomerized in a reaction zone containing a catalyst composed of a platinum-group metal, a metal attenuator, and a refracton/ inorganic oxide to produce benzene, toluene, and xylene @TX). This two-stage process achieves high selectivity in producing a high-purity BTX product from naphtha.
