Keywords: propylene to acrylonitrile conversion, multicomponent solid catalyst, petrochemical production

Summary:

By utilizing novel multicomponent solid catalyst, novel high performance and environmentally friendly acrylonitrile preparation process was developed. This process operates at lower temperature than the conventional Asahi or Sohio process and produces far less by products than any other existing commercial process.
