Conclusion L INTRODUCTION The selective conversion of light alkanes is of current interest from both the scientific and industrial viewpoints; the challenges include difficult activation of saturated C-H bonds and utilization of the abundant resource of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) containing mainly propane and butanes. With this regard, oxidative dehydrogenation of propane to produce propene [ 1 and ] aromatization of propane  have been investigated widely. It has been attempted to synthesize butenes and butadiene from n - butane over V-Mg-O catalysts  and maleic anhydride from n- butane over V-P-O catalysts . In these reactions, high temperatures are very often required even at a low conversion
