Abstract [en]

0.5% Rh catalysts on ZrO2 or CeO2-ZrO2, coated on monoliths were tested for partial oxidation of methane, (GHSV=100000h-1). We ran temperature cycles up to 850°C, varying the O2/CH4 ratio from 0.5 to 0.7. The catalysts were characterized by XRD, TPR/TPO, BET and chemisorption. ZrO2 required a long conditioning step, to reach stable performance, while the CeO2-ZrO2 catalyst quickly gained steady activity. The conditioning step is explained with a restructuring of the surface, with the metallic particles becoming smaller. Ceria lowers the ignition temperature by 60°C. At low temperature, ceria allows an increase in CH4 conversion and selectivity to syngas. At high temperature, the CeO2-ZrO2 catalyst significantly increases the CH4 conversion, compared to ZrO2, approaching 100%. However, the selectivity to syngas decreases below 80%. The syngas selectivity is higher at lower O2/CH4 ratio, at any temperature, but the absolute amount of syngas can be larger with more O2.
