The effect of calcination conditions on MoO3/SiO2 catalysts for the synthesis of methylphenyl carbonate was investigated in terms of catalytic activities and surface properties. The calcination temperature was varied in the range of 300 to 800°C. These calcination conditions have shown a close relationship with the catalyst activities. The optimal calcination temperature of MoO3/SiO2 was found to be around 550-600°C. The catalysts were characterized by XRD, SEM, FT-IR and XPS analysis.
