The aim of this work is to study the catalytic performance of synthesized zeolite materials in an oxidation reaction of an organic molecule. The synthesis of these zeolites was carried out by following protocols and under precise temperature and crystallization time conditions. The materials obtained are characterized using different characterization techniques, X-ray fluorescence (XF), X-ray diffraction (XRD), infrared spectroscopy (IR) and visible UV spectroscopy ( UVvis). The oxidation reaction was carried out in the presence of tert-butyl hydroperoxide (TBHP) as oxidant and zeolites incorporated with transition metals as catalyst. The progress of this reaction was followed by gas chromatography coupled to mass spectrometry (GC-MS), this reaction gave products consisting of the epoxide.
