Abstract: Mesoporous MgO was synthesized by the nanoreplication method using CMK-3 carbon as a hard template and magnesium nitrate as a metal oxide precursor. The produced support was modified with different amounts of ammonium metavanadate solution. Various distributions of V-containing species on the MgO surface were found by XRD, low-temperature adsorption of N2, TEM, XPS and UV–vis-DR spectroscopy. At low V loadings isolated VO4 dominated. Increasing V content resulted in clustering of VO4 species and the formation of Mg3V2O8 crystallites. As found in temperature-programmed reduction (H2-TPR), the latter phase was clearly harder in reduction by H2 compared to highly dispersed VO4 forms. The developed materials appeared to be very active catalysts of oxidative dehydrogenation of ethylbenzene (ODH). The optimal catalytic performance was observed for the sample containing 10 wt% of vanadium. The initial ethylbenzene conversion of 63.6% at selectivity to styrene of 86.9% was achieved at temperature as low as 500 °C. A notable influence of carbonaceous deposit formed during the ODH reaction on the catalytic activity was discussed, including presentation of both coexisting superficial reaction mechanisms. A reasonable regeneration procedure to recover lost activity was developed.
