Abstract

Methane is oxidized by oxygen in the absence of catalyst with micro wire initiation (MWI; the concept is shown in Fig. 1) method, which is composed of electrically heated small wire and low temperature reaction zone. With the existence of initiation reaction, methanol and CO was formed even under 400 K gas phase temperature. Main products of the reaction were methanol, hydrogen, CO, CO2 and water. We claimed a new model for the oxidation of methane with MWI.
