XRD, TEM, EXAFS/XANES methods are first used to study the structure and morphology of Mocontaining phases of carbon residues of heavy oil refining during catalytic steam cracking, catalytic cracking without water, and hydrocracking. According to the results obtained from physical and chemical studies of Mo-based catalytic phases, the reaction medium affects structural features of Mo-containing phases, e.g. the amount of oxide and sulphide forms, the particle size, and particle morphology.
