Oxidative coupling of methane (OCM) over La1-xMxAlO3-δ (M = Ca, Sr, Ba; x = 0, 0.1, 0.2, 0.3) in an electric field at low temperature (423 K) was investigated. Among the tested catalysts, the La0.7Ca0.3AlO3-δ catalyst showed the highest performance in terms of C2H6 + C2H4 yield (11.1%). Surface mobile oxygen species (O22- or O-), which were considered as active oxygen species for the OCM reaction, increased with increasing Ca doping amount, and thereby the La0.7Ca0.3AlO3-δ catalyst showed the best catalytic activity.
