The kinetics of propene catalytic oxidation to acrolein and acrylic acid was studied in a flow-circulation reactor over a multicomponent oxide catalyst containing molybdenum, cobalt, nickel, iron, bismuth, and potassium. The rate equations were found for the total formation of acrolein and acrylic acid.
