It is found that the yield of C2 + hydrocarbons is strongly dependent on the metals. Good yields of C2 + hydrocarbon are reached only on the supported NiB and CoB catalysts. The probability of C-C chain growth is increased by V promotion without seriously affecting the activities of CH4 decomposition and hydrogenation. The ease of carbon removal via hydrogenation is strongly affected by the CH4 decomposition temperature. Increasing hydrogenation temperature has a negative effect on the yield of C2 + hydrocarbons. XPS measurements show that a carbide-(like) carbon species is active and selective for hydrogenation to produce higher hydrocarbons. Its activity/selectivity is greatly reduced at high CH4 decomposition temperatures, mainly due to transition of the reactive carbidic to un-reactive graphitic form. Graphite/filamental carbons were found to be formed at high CH4 decomposition temperature.||Source Title:||Catalysis Letters||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/113206||ISSN:||1011372X||DOI:||10.1023/A:1014960702381|
