A study on the synthesis of bulk mesoporous and nanocrystalline orthorhombic Mo-V-Te-Nb-O catalysts inside the pore channels of ordered mesoporous hosts, e.g., SBA-15 silica and niobia, was carried out. The use of such mesoporous hosts confined the synthesis of the catalytic Mo-V-Te-Nb-O phases to the nanoscale region of their pore space. The fixed-bed microreactor studies of propane oxidative dehydrogenation oxidation to acrylic acid and ammoxidation to acrylonitrile were complemented by in situ and operando Raman studies of these novel catalysts and reference mixed metal oxide catalysts supported on non-porous Nb2O5. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the 2006 AIChE Annual Meeting (San Francisco, CA 11/12-17/2006).
