The mixed MoO3-ZnO oxides with various mole fraction of Mo, XMo, obtained by the impregnation method were heated in air and in hydrogen. As for the mixed oxide heated in air, MoO3 reactedstoichiometrically with ZnO to give ZnMoO4 at XMo < 0.5, while at XMo > 0.5, the reaction did not proceed completely. On the other hand, for the mixed oxide heated in hydrogen, at XMo < 0.5 ZnMoO4 was reduced to ZnMoO3 with the anion vacancy, while at XMo > 0.5, MoO3 was reduced to MoO2 and ZnMoO4 was difficult to be reduced to ZnMoO3. The structure of the surface and/or near the surface was different from the bulk structure.
