The uranyl species encapsulated within the mesopores of siliceous MCM-41 serves as efficient heterogeneous photo-catalyst for the sunlight-assisted direct oxidation of ethene. The mode of oxidation is through abstraction of H-atom from ethene by the photolytically excited uranyl species and the consequent formation of peroxy species. The in situ IR spectroscopy results indicate that these peroxy species give rise to final products such as carbon dioxide and water on further oxidation via formation of formate-type transient species. Furthermore, the silanol groups of the host matrix help in immobilization of these peroxy species through hydrogen bonding and, at the same time, they participate in the subsequent oxidation reactions also.
