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

Nowak, Jeremy A.

2013

Description
  • 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
