The general kinetic laws relating the changes in reactants and products ratios with changes in the operating conditions of the catalytic epoxidation and hydroxylation reaction of maleic acid by hydrogen peroxide have been analyzed. In the course of the hydroxylation reaction, the formation of epoxysuccinic and tartaric acids, and the decomposition of hydrogen peroxide to molecular oxygen have been observed to take place in parallel. The catalytic complex (Cat.2H2T) formed between sodium tungstate (catalyst) a…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
