Abstract

The role of the electric field and surface protonics on low temperature catalytic dry reforming of methane was investigated over 1 wt %Ni/10 mol %La-ZrO 2 catalyst, which shows very high catalytic activity even at temperatures as low as 473 K. We investigated kinetic analyses using isotope and in situ diffuse reflectance infrared Fourier transform spectroscopy (DRIFTS), and kinetic analyses revealed synergetic effects between the catalytic reaction and the electric field with less than one-fifth the apparent activation energy at low reaction temperatures. Results of kinetic investigations using isotopes such as CD 4 and 18 O 2 , in situ DRIFTS in the electric field, and density functional theory calculation indicate that methane dry reforming proceeds well by virtue of surface protonics. CH 4 and CO 2 were activated by proton collision at the Ni-La-ZrO 2 interface based on the "inverse" kinetic isotope effect.
