Abstract

1. Lamellar compounds of graphite with Cu, Co, Mn, Fe, Ni, Mo, and Znchlorides are catalytically active in the liquid-phase oxidation of cyclohexene by molecular oxygen and in the breakdown of cyclohexyl hydroper-oxides. Appreciable quantities of cyclohexene oxide are formed in these reactions on LCG-MoCl5. 2. On the basis of the determined product compositions, and our knowledge of the kinetics of heterogeneously catalyzed liquid-phase oxidation reactions, oxidation in the presence of the LCG must proceed through a radical-chain heterogeneous-homogeneous mechanism.
