The process of the ethylene glycol oxidation with using a number of different catalytic systems has been studied. Efficiency of supported Ag catalysts is associated with the stabilization of ion Ag+δ state under the influence of oxygen of the support lattice. It is shown that the application of the double- layer Cu - Ag catalytic system increases the selectivity of the ethylene glycol oxidation into glyoxal.
