The article describes an impact of metal-containing compounds - carbon nanofiber of platelet type, ferrocene
and naphthenate Co on the aerobic oxidation of ethylbenzene. It has been established that all types of the added
compounds reveal significant catalytic activity in the oxidation of ethylbenzene and may be ordered as: ferrocene >
naphthenate Co ≥ carbon nanofiber.
The authors guess that the results obtained are helpful to design new catalytic oxidation process profile of diesel fraction
rich by aromatics.
