Conventional and hydrophobic catalysts were tested for the oxidation of phenol solutions (5g/L), at 140ÂșC and 7 atm of oxygen pressure, in a trickle bed reactor. For the conventional catalyst, phenol conversion decreased with reaction time. However, for the wet proofed catalysts, phenol conversion levels remained almost constant with usage. The hydrophobic layer improved catalyst stability: prevented the formation of domains with cuprous species, minimized the solubilization of Cu2+ and the formation of bohmite phase during reaction.
