The conversion of butane into butenes and butadiene is still an area of industrial interest.  In this study we compare the activity and selectivity for butane dehydrogenation (DH) and butane oxidative dehydrogenation (ODH) over a vanadia/alumina catalyst under identical conditions of temperature, GHSV and pressure
