Molybdate catalysts, when selective in the olefin or alcohol oxidation, are thought to use lattice oxygen for the catalytic reaction (1–4), while gaseous oxygen only restores the original stoichiometry of the catalyst. On the contrary, total oxidation (mainly to CO2) was suggested to occur at the expense of oxygen adsorbed in an active form on the surface (5,6). Therefore, the non-selective total oxidation given by cadmium molybdate was associated to a strong oxygen adsorption together with the lack of red-ox partner (7).
