Abstract

In non-catalytic direct conversion of methane to acetylene by using direct current pulse discharge under conditions of ambient temperature and atmospheric pressure, the selectivity of acetylene from methane was >95% at methane conversion ranging from 16 to 52%; coexisting oxygen was very effective in removing deposited carbon and stabilized the state of discharge.
