    Abstract

    The selective reduction of molecular oxygen with excess H2 in the presence of alkenes was achieved successfully for the first time: silver supported on alumina catalysts exhibited full conversion of O2 at temperature as low as 50°C, while the conversion of ethene or propene remained essentially zero up to 250°C.
