Title: Method for gas phase catalytic oxidation of hydrocarbon

Abstract: A method for a gas phase catalytic oxidation reaction of a hydrocarbon,which comprises: subjecting an alkane having a carbon number ranging from3 to 8 and/or an alkene having a carbon number ranging from 2 to 8 to agas phase catalytic oxidation reaction to produce a vapor phase oxidationproduct in the presence of a mixed metal oxide catalyst, wherein thereacion is conducted in the presence of particles substantially inert tothe reaction in an amount within a range of the same amount as the amountof catalyst to 99 wt. % in all particles.
