Studies of the reduction kinetics of MoO3 and Al2O3-MoO3 catalysts in H2 at 523-823 K indicate that molybdenum is present in Al2O3/MoO3 in three forms: as Mo6+ in the Al2O3 lattice and as MoO3 and Al2(MoO4)3 phases. Activation energies of reduction Eact determined according to the Avrahmy-Erofeev equation, are reported.
