Pyridine adsorption was used as a probe of the surface structure of supported molybdate catalysts. The catalysts consisted of a γ-Al2O3support which had been impregnated with various molybdenum loadings ranging from 1.25 to 15% (MoO3) and cobalt loadings from 0 to 3% (CoO). Raman spectra and adsorption isotherms of pyridine adsorbed on these catalysts were recorded.
