Strategy to Eliminate Catalyst Hot-Spots in the Partial Oxidation of Methane: Enhancing its Activity for Direct Hydrogen Production by Reducing the Reactivity of Lattice Oxygen
Chemical Engineering, Catalysis and Reaction Engineering
Hydrogen can be produced over Er2O3 in methane oxidation (oxygen/methane = 26). The reactivity of lattice oxygen in the catalyst plays a main role in the conversion of surface hydroxylspecies to hydrogen or water. Adding a rare earth element into a catalyst can reduce the reactivity of lattice oxygen, resulting in increased hydrogen production, to eliminate catalyst hot-spots.
