We report here a new effective Cu-Al catalyst for dehydrogenation of propane at low temp. The catalyst is oxidized porous alloy with the structure similar to that of Raney-type catalyst. High power ultrasound was used for the creation of porous structure. A series of catalysts with various Cu content was prepd. The catalysts were activated under different conditions. Due to high activity and absence of noble metals, these catalysts open exciting opportunities for low-temp. dehydrogenation catalysts.
