Methane Activation on Model Catalysts and the Effects of Vibrational Excitation on Methane Reactivity.

Nowak, Jeremy A.
2013

In the steam reforming process, methane and water react on the surface of a metal catalyst to form hydrogen (H2) and carbon monoxide (CO). The rate-limiting step of this reaction is the cleavage of a carbon-hydrogen bond in methane to form surface-bound hydrogen and methyl (CH3) fragments. This thesis describes eigenstate-resolved molecular beam-surface scattering experiments of vibrat... read more
