Vanadium phosphate catalysts have successfully been prepared in aqueous media using hydrogen. The catalysts precursors obtained were poorly crystalline VOHPO4.05H2O and a minor amount of an impurity detected by a reflection in the XRD pattern. Activating these materials for n-butane oxidation show low selectivity of MA (5%), which could be attributed to the presence of V(V) phases after activation.
