Title: In situ Investigation of Methane Dry Reforming on M-CeO 2(111) {M= Co, Ni, Cu} Surfaces: Metal-Support Interactions and the activation of C-H bonds at Low Temperature

Abstract

Studies with a series of M-CeO 2(111) {M= Co, Ni, Cu} surfaces indicate that metal-oxide interactions can play a very important role for the activation of methane and its reforming with CO 2 at relatively low temperatures (600-700 K). Among the systems examined, Co-CeO 2(111) exhibits the best performance and Cu-CeO 2(111) has negligible activity. Experiments using ambient pressure XPS indicate that methane dissociates on Co-CeO2(111), at temperatures as low as 300 K, generating CH x and CO x species on the catalyst surface. The results of density-functional calculations show a reduction in the methane activation barrier from 1.07 eV on Co(0001) to 0.87 eV on Co 2+/CeO 2(111), and to only 0.05 eV on Co 0/CeO 2-x(111). At 700 K, under methane dry reforming conditions, CO 2 dissociates on the oxide surface and a catalytic cycle is established without coke deposition. In conclusion, a significant part of the CH x formed on the Co 0/CeO 2-x (111) catalyst recombines to yield ethane or ethylene.
