A pure M1 phase catalyst was originally obtained by treatment of the multi-phase Mo–V–Te–Nb–O catalyst in the reaction atmosphere and was systematically studied by some physico-chemical techniques. The results showed that the reaction treatment played an important role in improving the performance of the catalyst.
