This paper presents the synergetic effect of Te2MoO7 and MoO3 (WO3) in the partial oxidation of propylene to acrolein. The study found that the addition of MoO3 (or WO3) to Te2MoO7 greatly promoted the propylene conversion and acrolein yield. As the results of the investigation revealed, the higher catalytic performance could be attributed to the increased acidity, which is beneficial for the adsorption of propylene.
