Catalytic ability of tungsten compounds in the reaction of hydroperoxide epoxidation of 1- octene and tert-butyl hydroperoxide decomposition was investigated. It is shown that the nature of ligand has significant effect on the catalytic activity of tungsten compounds in these reactions. It is established that boride and silicide of tungsten are the best choice for epoxidation reaction, whereas tungsten carbide exhibits poor activity. Tungsten boride is also the most active in the hydroxide decomposition reaction.
