The vapor-phase oxidation of 4-picoline to pyridine-4-carboxaldehyde on (VO)2P2O7 has been studied. VOHPO4·0.5 H20 was used as catalyst precursor. The resulting aldehyde was trapped as oxime with hydroxylamine hydrochloride solution in a subsequent reaction. In the optimum temperature range (683–703 K), a high 4-picoline conversion with good selectivity for the aldehyde was observed.

Исследовали парофазное окисление 4-пиколина до пиридин-4-карбоксиальдегида на (VO)2P2O7. Предшественником катализатора служил VOHPO4·0,5H20. Образующийся альдегид ловили в виде оксима с помощью раствора гидрохлорида гидроксиламина. В оптимальном интервале температур (683–703 К) была достигнута высокая конверсия 4-пиколина с хорошей селективностью к альдегиду.
