The selective oxidation of ammonia to hydroxylamine using titanium silicalite-1 as a catalyst with an increasing content range of 1-2.5 wt% TiO2 was systematically investigated in a batch reactor. The hydroxylamine yielded 33, 43, 52 and 62% at reaction temperatures of 50, 60, 70 and 80 degrees C, respectively, for 8 min using a TS-1a catalyst, which contained 2.5% TiO2. The molar ratio of 15 NH3/H2O2 was kept during these reactions. Experiments were also conducted with different amounts of NH3/H2O2 in molar ratios, which were between 7 and 60 to investigate the effect of NH3/H2O2 molar ratio on the reactions. Reactions with higher ratios of NH3/H2O2 were seen to have a higher yield at the end of the reaction performance time.
