Abstract

It has been observed on the oxidized V2O5/gamma-Al2O3 that C3H6 form alkoxides which were converted to acetone during the desorption of adsorbate phase at 373 K. C3H8 may form pi-complexes on the reduced form of the same catalyst. However, the intensities of the bands in the ad-adsorption of C3H8 were very weak as compared with the case Of C3H6 adsorption. Therefore, it was not reasonable to assign these bands clearly as any of the surface type species.
