Bi-functional Nb–Beta zeolite catalysts display high efficiency for the catalytic wet oxidation of glucose to succinic acid. Most probably, the extra framework aluminum species dehydrate glucose to levulinic acid which, in turn, is efficiently oxidized to succinic acid by the Nb species. The reactions are carried out using water as solvent, with molecular oxygen as the sole oxidation reagent. These catalysts also demonstrate very good stability in water, having been successfully recycled several times. View this paper
