Oxidation of cyclohexane to cyclohexanol and cyclohexanone was carried out using H4[a-SiW12O40]/TiO2 as catalyst. In the first experiment, catalyst H4[a-SiW12O40]/TiO2 was synthesized and characterized using FTIR spectroscopy and X-Ray analysis. In the second experiment, catalyst H4[a-SiW12O40]/TiO2 was applied for conversion of cyclohexane. The conversion of cyclohexane was monitored using GC and GCMS. The results showed that H4[a-SiW12O40]/TiO2 was successfully synthesized using 1 g of H4[a-SiW12O40] and 0.5 g of TiO2. The FTIR spectrum showed vibration of H4[a-SiW12O40] appeared at 771-979 cm-1 and TiO2 at 520-680 cm-1. The XRD powder pattern analysis indicated that crystallinity of catalyst still remained after impregnation to form H4[a-SiW12O40]/TiO2. The H4[a-SiW12O40]/TiO2 catalyst was used for oxidation of cyclohexane in heterogeneous system under mild condition at 2 h, 70 °C, 0.038 g catalyst, and 3 mL hydrogen peroxide to give cyclohexanone as major product.

Catalyst (NH4)6[b-P2W18O62]/Ta has been synthesized by simple wet impregnation at 30-40 °C under atmospheric conditions using Dawson type polyoxometalate (NH4)6[b-P2W18O62] and tantalum. The catalyst was characterized by FTIR spectrophotometer, XRD, SEM, and N2 adsorption desorption methods. FTIR spectrum of (NH4)6[b-P2W18O62]/Ta showed that Dawson type polyoxometalate (NH4)6[b-P2W18O62] and Ta was successfully impregnated which was indicated by vibration spectrum at wavenumber of 900-1100 cm-1 for polyoxometalate and 550 cm-1 for Ta. The surface area of the (NH4)6[b-P2W18O62]/Ta after impregnation was higher than (NH4)6[b-P2W18O62]•nH2O and its morphology was found to be uniform. The catalytic activity of (NH4)6[b-P2W18O62]/Ta toward desulfurization of dibenzothiophene was three times higher than the original catalyst of (NH4)6[b-P2W18O62]•nH2O without impregnation. The catalytic regeneration test of catalyst (NH4)6[b-P2W18O62]/Ta showed that the catalytic activity for first regeneration of catalyst has similar catalytic activity with the fresh catalyst without loss of catalytic activity indicated by almost similar percent conversion.
