Title: Conversion of ethane to ethylene

Abstract

Methods of converting ethane to ethylene at relatively low temperatures are described. Ir02-based catalysts are used in the conversion. Methods of converting a base gas to a first gas by exposing the base gas to an IrO2-based catalyst and forming the first gas are described. The base gas can be an alkane. The first gas can include an alkene, an alkyne, an alcohol, an aldehyde, or combinations thereof.
