A novel hierarchically ordered porous vanado-silicate nanocompsoites were fabricated with isolated vanadium species with well dispersed state in the porous martrix for the oxidation of bulkier organic molecules i.e cyclooctene for the selective production of cyclooctene oxide (epoxide) using hydrogen peroxide as an oxidising agent.
