Catalytic CO2 Reforming of Methane over Perovskite Noble Metals


Article Preview

A series of perovskite-type oxides catalyst LaAl1-xNixO3 (0≤x≤1) and modified by substitute noble metal La0.4Al0.2Ni0.8M0.6O3 (M=Pt, Pd, Ru, Rh, Ir) prepared by the sol-gel method shows high activity, stability, good resistance to carbon deposition and sintering of the catalyst for the reforming of methane reaction. The reaction was studied under continuous flow using a mixture of CH4:CO2=1:1. Catalysts were characterized by using BET, XRD, SEM, EDS, and HR-TEM. The specific surface area of catalysts varied greatly from 3.07 to 10.18 m2/g with the different substitution (x) following calcination at 850°C. XRD analysis of the solids shows LaNiO3 and/or LaAlO3 as the main phases present on the solids depending on the degree of substitution and more intense peaks and cell parameters showed formation of Ni-Al solid solutions. SEM coupled to an energy dispersive X-ray spectrometer (EDS) shows the possibility to obtain a solid solution of LaAl1-xNixO3 (0≤x≤1) with propionic acid as solvent. The obtained results revealed that the Rh and Ru catalysts showed the highest activity and also showed a high catalytic stability without any decrease in methane conversion up to 3000min of reaction.
