Abstract

The DC pulse discharge technology was utilized in non-catalytic direct conversion of CH 4 under ambient temperature and 1 atm. Acetylene was produced with 95% selectivity. Though CH 4 conversion increased depending on the number of irradiated pulse and the distance of electrodes, the selectivity was almost constant. A study on the effect of the coexisting gas in removing deposited carbon from the discharge region showed that oxygen was most effective. CO was a by-product, but CO 2 was not produced. Even under oxygen coexisting condition, acetylene selectivity was kept constant under any CH 4 conversion. Reforming of CH 4 with CO 2 or steam also proceeded with this technology. The catalytic reaction with discharge is currently being investigated. Original is an abstract.
