The activity of the catalysts obtained by supporting Fe3+ oxalate complexes on α-and γ-Al2O3 in oxidation of CH4, C4H10 and CO has been studied. The composition of the impregnating solution and the temperature of catalyst thermal treatment were varied. The most active catalysts were prepared by impregnation of γ-Al2O3 with (NH4)3[Fe(C2O4)3] solutions at pH=2.0−3.5. Their activity appears to be close to that of Al-Mg-Cr catalysts in butane oxidation and even exceeds this in CO oxidation.
