The Consideration of Splendid Increasing Trend of Green Fuel H2 Production with the Help of Nanofine Materials
Processes to transform natural gas into hydrogen or synthesis of gas (H2+CO) have been extensively studied in recent decades. H2 can be used in fuel cells as a power source and syngas may be converted into hydrocarbons via the Fischer-Tropsch synthesis. An attractive alternative process for syngas production is the partial oxidation of methane (POM). The objective of this study is to find effective conditions in using of nanofine particles for producing high activity and novel nanocatalysts to syngas, especially selectivity green fuel H2 gas as a power source. Therefore, we could produce 98.6% methane conversion, and 97.1% H2 selectivity with the help of unique stable and new nanofine materials: Eco-friendly x%Ni / SiO2, Co /Ce/ZrO2, Ru / Ce / ZrO2, and highly active Co-Ru and Ni-Ru bimetallic over Ce-ZrO2 nanosized mixed oxide support catalysts. Recently, we prepared new and interesting nanostructures by Cu and Ni sputtering on the nanosized Ce-ZrO2 solid solution support in the first time. Several surfactants, dispersants and mixture of alcohol solvents were applied in synthesis of nanostructures and nanofluids as remarkable templates.
