Catalytic Studies of Methane Partial Oxidation

  • G. Stewart Walker

Abstract

A number of catalysts have been reported in patents and literature that are claimed to produce methanol at selectivities in excess of 75% by direct partial oxidation of methane. Investigations of potential catalysts for the heterogeneous direct conversion of methane to methanol have been undertaken.
