We investigated novel LaMnOx perovskiteoxide (ABO3) catalysts for effective catalytic dehydrogenation of ethylbenzene to produce styrene monomer. Comparison with industrial Fe-K catalyst, our La0.8Ba 0.2 Mn0.6Fe0.4O3-δ catalyst showed higher activity. Results show that the A-site in perovskite-type oxides affected catalytic dehydrogenation activities and that the B-site affected stability of the activities.
