Abstract

The oxidative dehydrogenation of cyclohexane was studied at 440 and 484°C over NdV04, Mg3(VO4)2, and a mixed VMg0 catalyst. Cyclohexene was the major initial product. Benzene, carbon oxides, and a trace of cyclohexadiene were also observed. The catalytic behavior of the mixed VMg0 catalyst in this reaction was very similar to its behavior in the oxidation of butane. However, the behaviors of NdV04 in the two reactions were different. The difference between the two catalysts was attributed to their different rates of reoxidation.
