Abstract / Description:Motivation
Mixed oxide catalysts containing molybdenum, vanadium and tungsten are widely used in industry for partial oxidation reactions [1, 2, 3]. Previous work revealed (MoVW)5O14 to be the active phase of the catalyst. The partial oxidation from acrolein to acrylic acid is performed on such a system [4, 5]. This catalytic system is characterised by high long term stability, excellent turn-over rates and high selectivity. Different preparation steps are necessary to form a single phase, crystalline, ternary oxide (MoVW)5O14 as a model catalyst. In a previous paper [6] it was suggested that a precursor of this oxide is already formed in solution. Therefore this poster is dedicated to propose a structure of the dissolved species and a reaction mechanism leading to the formation of this structure in solution.
For the synthesis of this oxide, solutions of ammonium heptamolybdate, ammonium metatungstate, and vanadyl oxalate were spray-dried followed by different thermal treatments. The structures of the materials formed in solution were studied using UV/Vis Raman and ESR spectroscopy.
It is suggested from this data that a molecular structure is already formed in solution which seems to be closely related to that of the final crystalline Mo5O14-type oxide. Raman spectroscopy shows bands at 964, 943, 912, 821, 792, 709 and 682 cm-1. The bands at 943 and 792 cm-1 could be assigned to AHM. Bands at 964, 879, 821, 709, und 682 cm-1 do not belong to AHM and point to a polymeric species This result could be corroborated by UV/Vis and ESR spectroscopy. Moreover ESR shows that the state of oxidation of molybdenum and tungsten is +6. The state of oxidation of vanadium is +4. Vanadium exists as vanadyl type.
The spray-dried sample shows bands at 943, 872, and 818 cm-1. A higher degree of polymerisation in the dried sample could be responsible for the shift of the band at 872 cm-1 compared to the spectrum in solution 879 cm-1.
