SELECTIVE OXIDATION OF METHANE TO SYNTHESIS GAS-USING TRANSITION-METAL CATALYSTS

Abstract:

THE diminishing reserves of petroleum oil have focused attention on the possibility of making more efficient use of natural gas, reserves of which are at present considerably under-utilized. Methane is commonly used as a fuel, but it is also the starting material for the production, by steam reforming, of synthesis gas (carbon monoxide and hydrogen), which acts as a feedstock for the synthesis of ammonia and methanol, and can be converted to higher hydrocarbons, alcohols and aldehydes by Fisc...
