Abstract

Titanium-amine functionalized silica was successfully prepared by a so-called one-pot approach by using 3-aminopropyltrimethoxysilane (APTMS), tetraethoxysilane (TEOS) and titanium(IV) sulfate as precursors. It is demonstrated that the TEOS/APTMS molar ratio in the synthesis of titaniumamine functionalized silica affected the local coordination of titanium and its corresponding positive impact on catalytic activity in oxidation of limonene by aqueous hydrogen peroxide.
