About Maleic Anhydride:
Maleic Anhydride, a cyclic anhydride of maleic acid, is a white crystalline solid with an acrid odour, but remains liquid or gas during production. Two acid carbonyl groups and a double bond is present in its structure, which make it useful for broad industrial applications. It derives from natural malic acid. Maleic anhydride and maleic and fumaric acids were first prepared in the 1830s. However, their production at commercial scale did not begin until a century later.

- Production of Maleic Anhydride via Vapour-Phase Oxidation of N-Butane or Benzene
In both the routes, butane and benzene are fed into a stream of hot air, and they are passed through a catalyst bed at much higher temperatures. While vanadium pentoxide and molybdenum trioxide serve as a catalyst for the benzene route, vanadium phosphate is utilised for the butane route.
