(64b) Direct Conversion of Methane to Aromatics Using Metal Carbides
In this presentation, we will present our results related to different pre-carburization methodologies to tune the Mo/H-ZSM-5 catalyst properties with enhanced activity and stability. We control the nature and the amount of carbide species formed during the initial induction period and relate that with the catalysts activity. Stress in the presentation will be focused towards the present Mo/H-ZSM-5 catalyst and the newly emerging family of two dimensional (2D) layered carbides, with an aim to stabilize the existing catalyst and to further explore different catalytic active material for the MDA process.
