Abstract: The incorporation of transition metals in the mesoporous sieve MCM-41 makes this material very attractive for heterogeneous catalysis, especially with bulky substrates. We report on the use of mesoporous MCM-41 in the oxidation of cholesterol with t-BHP. The selectivity of the reaction depends on the metal incorporated in the pore walls of the sieve. When Zr-MCM-41 is used, 3-ketocholesterol is the main product, whereas the incorporation of Ti leads to the formation of 5,6-epoxycholesterol.
