    Abstract

    Non-catalytic methane activation with spark discharge showed high energy efficiency and high selectivity to acetylene by the collision of electrons possessing high energy enough to dissociate methane into atomic carbon. The application of spark discharge to steam reforming of methane was effective for hydrogen production at low temperature. The selectivity to desired product was improved by the combination with catalyst.
