1,3-Butadiene, an important raw material for a variety of chemical products, can be produced via the oxidative dehydrogenation (ODH) of n-butenes over multicomponent oxide catalysts based on bismuth molybdates and ferrites. In this review, the basic concept, reaction mechanism, and catalysts typically used in an ODH reaction are discussed. © 2015, Springer Science+Business Media New York.
