Abstract: CO2 utilization in catalytic membrane reactors for syngas production is an environmentally benign solution to counter the escalating global CO2 concerns. In this study, integration of a La 0.6Sr0.4Co0.8Ga0.2O 3-δ (LSCG) hollow fiber membrane reactor with Ni/LaAlO 3-Al2O3 catalyst for the oxidative CO 2 reforming of methane (OCRM) reaction was successfully tested for 160 h of reaction. High CH4 and CO2 conversions of ca. 94% and 73% were obtained with O2 flux ca. 1 mL·min -1·cm-2 at 725 C for the 160-h stability test. Surface temperature programmed desorption studies of the membrane were conducted with H2, CO, and CO2 as probe gases to facilitate understanding on the effect of H2 and CO product gases as well as CO2 reactant gases on the membrane surface. Scanning electron microscopy-energy dispersive X-ray (SEM-EDX), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), and Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) analysis of the postreacted membrane after 160-h stability tests suggests Sr-enriched phases with the presence of adsorbed carbonate and hydrogenated carbon. This shows the subsequent reactant spillover on the membrane surface from the catalyst bed took place due to the reaction occurring on the catalyst. However, XRD analysis of the bulk structure does not show any phase impurities, thus confirming the structural integrity of the LSCG hollow fiber membrane. © 2013 American Chemical Society.
