Abstract

A range of metal oxides have been compared as methane combustion catalysts. The effect of modification to generate 'superacidic' behaviour on the activities of ZrO2 and Fe2O3 systems has been studied. It has been shown that whilst sulphation lowers the activity of Fe2O3, sulphation and, particularly, molybdation enhance the performance of ZrO2. Despite enhancing the activity of the unmodified base oxides, the addition of low levels of Pt has been demonstrated to poison the activity of 'superacidic' zirconias.
