The electrical conductivity of different vanadium oxide catalysts for the selective oxidation of n-alkanes was studied with the newly developed in situ microwave cavity perturbation technique. We will show correlations between probed charge carriers and catalytic performance and deduced criteria for highly selective oxidation catalysts.
