The influence of the introduction of V2O5 into NiMo/Al2O3 catalysts on their activity in hydrodesulfurization (HDS) and hydrogenation reactions of the components of petroleum fractions has been studied. The activity of the synthesized catalysts has been determined in the straight-run diesel and light coker gas oil hydrotreating processes in a flow-through unit under hydrogen pressure. The most active catalyst for HDS and hydrogenation of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons has been synthesized using VMo12 heteropoly compounds: the activity increases by 6–10 and 11–13 wt % in HDS and PAH hydrogenation, respectively, at different temperatures. It has been shown that the activity of the regenerated catalyst further impregnated with the vanadium compound in HDS and PAH hydrogenation increases by 2–5 rel. %, as compared to the regenerated catalyst.
