Oxidation of stilbenes included in zeolites is much more efficient than in isotropic organic solvent. Oxidation efficiency depends on the cation and the presence of intra-zeolite water. Electron transfer from the oxidant stilbene to the excited dye molecule is suggested to initiate a non chain oxidation process.
