Novel polyoxovanadate based open-framework material (Co-POV), exhibits superior catalytic property as compared with its constituent metal oxides, V2O5, CoO and their mixture, for oxidative dehydrogenation (ODH) of propane, showing more selectivity to propylene at 300-400 oC. Gamma ray irradiation of Co-POV enhanced its catalytic ODH performance with higher selectivity.
