Stefan Kaskel and team look at the partial oxidation and dry reformation of methane using a ceria/platinum catalyst on a silicon carbide support in this Catalysis Science & Technology Hot article.
This catalyst will be useful in the production of syngas, which is used in the Fischer-Tropsch process to make hydrocarbons and methanol (see our earlier post for other articles on this topic)
Stefan Kaskel is from Dresden University of Technology, Germany, visit his website to find out more about his research.
