Different wt% of vanadium-substituted molybdophosphoric acid H4PMo11VO40 loaded on titania (TiO2) are prepared by wet impregnation method. The catalytic activity of PMoV-supported titania catalyst for the vapor-phase ammoxidation of m-xylene at different temperatures is reported here. The synthesized catalysts were characterized by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), X-ray diffraction, N2 adsorption–desorption, thermogravimetric/differential thermal analysis, temperature programmed desorption (TPD), temperature programmed reduction (TPR) scanning electron microscopy, energydispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDX), and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). FTIR studies confirmed that the Keggin structure of PMoV does not change even up to 460_C when loaded on TiO2 surface. Among all the PMoV-supported TiO2 catalysts, 1.7% PMoV/TiO2 showed excellent activity for vapor-phase ammoxidation of m-xylene with 85.4% yield of isophthalonitrile.
