The partial oxidation of methane to methanol presents one of the most challenging targets in catalysis. Although this is the focus of much research, until recently, approaches had proceeded at low catalytic rates (<10 h(-1) ), not resulted in a closed catalytic cycle, or were unable to produce methanol with a reasonable selectivity. Recent research has demonstrated, however, that a system composed of an iron- and copper-containing zeolite is able to catalytically convert methane to methanol with turnover frequencies (TOFs) of over 14 000 h(-1) by using H(2) O(2) as terminal oxidant. However, the precise roles of the catalyst and the full mechanistic cycle remain unclear. We hereby report a systematic study of the kinetic parameters and mechanistic features of the process, and present a reaction network consisting of the activation of methane, the formation of an activated hydroperoxy species, and the by-production of hydroxyl radicals. The catalytic system in question results in a low-energy methane activation route, and allows selective C(1) -oxidation to proceed under intrinsically mild reaction conditions.
