The transhydrogenation of propyne and butane was studied over a 1 % VO x /alumina catalyst at 873 K. In the absence of the vanadia, the alumina support was active for cracking and alkylation. However, the addition of the vanadia reduced the propensity for both cracking and alkylation and added dehydrogenation activity. When propyne and butane were co-fed over the catalyst there was a synergistic effect resulting in an increased conversion of propyne (81 cf. 26 % when fed alone); however, much of this increased conversion was converted to carbon deposited on the catalyst. Transhydrogenation of propyne to propene was detected with an enhanced yield of propene when the propane/butane mix was passed over the catalyst. Taking a yield based on propyne fed then the yield of propene increased from 1.2 to 5.0 %. The conversion of butane to value-added products was also enhanced with all the butane converted accounted for in the production of 1-butene, trans-2-butene, iso-butane and iso-butene.
