Conclusions

  1. 1.

    A mechanism was proposed, satisfactorily explaining the experimental data on slow low-temperature oxidation of methane.

     
  2. 2.

    In the oxidation of methane there is an interaction of the mechanisms of chain propagation through formaldehyde and hydrogen peroxide.

     
  3. 3.

    In the region of low temperatures (400–700°), the rate of branching is a maximum in the process H2O2+M → OH+OH+M; in the region of high temperatures (greater than 1000°) it is a maximum in the process H+O2→ OH+O.
