Abstract

Microwave heating was applied to the catalytic reforming reaction of methane with carbon dioxide over platinum catalysts. It was found that CO2 and CH4 conversions and the product selectivity (H2/CO) were generally higher under microwave conditions than that obtained with conventional heating at the same measured temperature. The effect of microwave heating was attributed to the formation of hot spots with higher temperature than that measured in the bulk catalyst bed.
