SiO2-included cesium polyoxotungstate catalysts were synthesized by a sol-gel method and characterizied by FTIR, XRD and N2 adsorption isotherms. XRD patterns prove that the cesium polyoxotungstate is uniformly dispersed in the silica network. The catalysts were used in oxidation of cyclohexane with H2O2. The products are cyclohexanol and cyclohexanone. The catalysts prepared by using a copolymer surfactant show higher surface area and exhibit higher activity. These catalysts are truly heterogeneous and can be reused at least 3 times.
