    A theoretical interpretation of the mechanism of ethylene glycol oxidation to glyoxal over Ag-containingcatalysts is considered. A model system, reflecting the interaction of Ag cluster with process adsorbates and/or intermediates, is proposed. Both partial oxidation of ethylene glycol to glyoxal and CO2 formationroutes are reconstructed, and the corresponding reaction profiles are represented. The roles played by themost important reaction intermediates participating in the process under consideration are discussed.
