A membrane-like $H_3PMo_{12}O_{40}$-polysulfone film was prepared by blending $H_3PMo_{12}O_{40}$ with polysulfone using dimethylformamide as a common solvent. SEM and EDX analysis showed that $H_3PMo_{12}O_{40}$ was uniformly and finely distributed in the film catalyst. The ESCA measurement also revealed that the oxidation state of Mo was not changed. The $H_3PMo_{12}O_{40}$-polysulfone catalyst showed lower activity for acid-catalyzed reaction and higher activity for oxidation reaction than $H_3PMo_{12}O_{40}$ in ethanol conversion reaction. The oxidation activity of the film catalyst was about 10 times higher than $H_3PMo_{12}O_{40}$. The decrease of acidic activity was due to DMF strongly adsorbed in acid sites of $H_3PMo_{12}O_{40}$, whereas the increase of oxidation activity was mainly due to uniform distribution of $H_3PMo_{12}O_{40}$. Adsorption results showed that the surface character of $H_3PMo_{12}O_{40}$ was drastically increased, while the bulk property of that was almost same after blending. It is suggested that the control of surface/bulk property as well as acid/redox property of heteropoly acid would be possible by blending it with a polymer.
