Microwave (MW) heating has been applied to increase the selectivity to propylene in the oxidative dehydrogenation (ODH) of propane. The preferential heating of the solid monolith (made of SiC, a good microwave susceptor), allows working with a lower gas phase temperature, reducing the formation of undesired by-products in the gas phase via homogeneous reactions.
