Abstract

Methane activation on diluted metal ensembles is a challenging task in the field of alloy chemistry. This report describes that synergy between an electric field and Pd-Zn alloy allows improved catalytic activities in the steam reforming of methane. Because of surface protonics, Pd-Pd ensembles are no longer needed. Ligand effects facilitate methane conversion.
