Synthesis and chracterization of nanostructured Co^1-xNi^xMoO^4 catalysts active in the ODH of propane

Jaume Vila, Fernando Sapiña, Eduardo Martínez, Vicente Cortés, Jerzy Podobinski


The oxidative dehydrogenation (ODH) of propane is a highly
promising reaction for the obtaining of propene, compared to
the industrial methods currently used. However, it presents a
series of disadvantages that are difficult to overcome. In this work
we study the synthesis, characterization and catalytic behavior
of mixed Ni/Co molybdates in the ODH of propane. The molybdates
are obtained by calcination of freeze-dried precursors at
low temperatures.
