The investigations of 1-buten-3-ol (1B3O) epoxidation by 30% hydrogen peroxide over Ti-Beta catalyst were performed. The experiments were carried out under the autogenic pressure and at the presence of methanol as a solvent. The influence of the following technological parameters on the course of epoxidation: temperature (20 - 120°C), the molar ratio of 1B3O/H2O2 (0.5:1 - 5:1), methanol concentration (5 - 90 wt%.), Ti-Beta concentration (0.1 - 5.0 wt%) and the reaction time (0.5 - 5.0 h) was investigated. The main functions describing the process were: the selectivity of transformation to 1,2-epokxy-3-butanol in relation to 1B3O consumed, conversions of substrates as well as the selectivity of transformation to organic compounds in relation hydrogen peroxide consumed.
