In this work the epoxidation of methallyl alcohol (MAA) with 30 wt% H2O2 over the Ti-MWW catalyst has been studied. The significant parameters for the MAA epoxidation were established as temperature (20-120°C), the molar ratio of MAA/H2O2 (1:1-5:1), methanol (solvent) concentration (5-90 wt%), Ti-MWW catalyst concentration (0-5.0 wt%), reaction time (5-300 min) and intensity of stirring (0-500 rpm). The process of MAA epoxidation was carried out the most effective at temperature of 100°C, the molar ratio of MAA/H2O2=1:1, methanol concentration of 40 wt%, the catalyst concentration of 2 wt%, the reaction time of 15 min and with the stirring intensity over 350 rpm. These the best technological parameters (mild and relatively safe) allow to obtain the selectivity of transformation to 2MG 37 mol%, the MAA conversion 52 mol%, and the selectivity of transformation to organic compounds in relation to H2O2 consumed 48 mol%.
