Ti-MWW, one of the latest titanium-silicalite catalysts, has been prepared by direct hydrothermal synthesis using hexamethyleneimine as a structure-directing agent. The characteristic of the catalyst was performed by means of the following methods: XRD, SEM, IR, UV-vis and X'Ray microanalysis. The catalytic properties of Ti-MWW have been compared with those of the conventional titanium-silicalites TS-1 and TS-2 in the epoxidation of allyl alcohol with hydrogen peroxide. The process has been described by the following main functions: the selectivity of the transformation to glycidol in relation to allyl alcohol consumed, the conversions of the substrates (allyl alcohol and hydrogen peroxide) and the selectivity of the transformation to organic compounds in relation to hydrogen peroxide consumed.
