Abstract: Natural gas (i.e. methane) conversion to syngas has attracted global research efforts as it is a key intermediate for chemical production via Fischer Tropsch process. Numerous researches in recent years for syngas production include dry reforming of methane (DRM) and partial oxidation of methane (POM) reactions. Furthermore utilization of CO2 with methane (two major greenhouse gases) has very important environmental implications. However, the major concerns associated DRM reaction is its high endothermicity, high carbon deposition rate and metal sintering which can cause catalyst deactivation. On the other hand, the main concern for POM reactions stem from requirement of costly cryogenic air separation process for oxygen supply, besides catalytic deactivation caused by metal sintering. First, the development of active and stable Ni-based catalyst was conducted for DRM reaction. Subsequently, development of a chemically stable perovskite membrane for integration with the developed catalyst in POM and oxidative DRM reaction was studied.
