Title: Cyclic catalytic upgrading of chemical species using metal oxide materials

Abstract

Processes are disclosure which comprise alternately contacting an oxygen-carrying catalyst with a reducing substance, or a lower partial pressure of an oxidizing gas, and then with the oxidizing gas or a higher partial pressure of the oxidizing gas, whereby the catalyst is alternately reduced and then regenerated to an oxygenated state. In certain embodiments, the oxygen-carrying catalyst comprises at least one metal oxide-containing material containing a composition having the following formulas: (a) Ce.sub.xB.sub.yB'.sub.zB''O.sub..delta., wherein B=Ba, Sr, Ca, or Zr; B'=Mn, Co, and/or Fe; B''=Cu; 0.01<x<0.99; 0<y<0.6; 0<z<0.5; (b) Ce.sub.1-x-yNi.sub.xB.sub.yO.sub.2-*, wherein B=Zr, Ba, Ca, La, or K; 0.02<x<0.1; 0<y<0.1; and 0.02<*<0.15; and 1<.delta.<2.2 and (c) coal ash either as a catalyst material itself or as a support for said unary or binary metal oxides.
