A number of strueture-insensitive and structure-sensitive reactions have been established for vanadium oxide catalysts. Oxidations of H2, ethene, benzene, and 1-butene are structure-insensitive reactions, while oxidations of CO, 1,3-butadiene, and furan are structure-sensitive reactions. It has also been found that the activity of supported catalyst is greatly controlled by the structure sensitivity as well as the chemical effect of support.
