    Abstract: The photo activities of some photo-catalysts including TiO2, Bi2WO6 and Bi2WO6-TiO2 (in various mixing ratios) were evaluated for photo-epoxidation of propylene. The photocatalytic epoxidation reaction was performed in gas-phase under atmospheric pressure. Typical reaction mixture of C3H6:O2:N2 corresponding to the ratio 1:1:18, afforded PO (PO) in...
