The oxidative dehydrogenation of propane using gallium-molybdenum based catalysts

Davies, Thomas and Taylor, Stuart H. ORCID: 2004. The oxidative dehydrogenation of propane using gallium-molybdenum based catalysts. Catalysis Letters 93 (3-4) , pp. 151-154. 10.1023/B:CATL.0000017069.52359.6a

Catalysts based on a physical mixture of Ga2O3 and MoO3 have been prepared and evaluated for propane partial oxidation to propene. The Ga2O3/MoO3 catalysts demonstrated propene yields greater than a 6 wt V2O 5/TiO2 catalyst, which is known to be active for the reaction. The higher yield of propene was achieved by the alkane activation properties of Ga2O3 and the selective oxidation function of MoO3 combining in a synergistic manner.
