Rate oscillations during partial oxidation of methane over chromel–alumel thermocouples

Zhang, X., Mingos, D.M.P. and Hayward, D.O. (2001) Rate oscillations during partial oxidation of methane over chromel–alumel thermocouples Catalysis Letters, 72, (3-4), pp. 147-152. (doi:10.1023/A:1009036128275).

Record type: Article


A chromel–alumel thermocouple has been found to catalyse the methane/oxygen reaction, the main products being CO, H2 with some CO2 and H2O. Regular oscillations in both reactants, products and temperature have been observed at temperatures around 700thinspcirC. Similar behaviour has been obtained using nickel wires.
