The article focuses on the biomorphic silicon carbide (bioSiC) pellets as catalyst support for partial oxidation of methane (POM) to syngas based on study. It notes that POM has lower energy consumption and higher efficiency. The researchers used alumina to modify the bioSiC surface and reduce the loss of nickel during the reaction. The use of alumina also resulted to higher catalytic activity and stability in bioSiC catalyst.

    Methane steam reforming was investigated over a Ni/NiAlO catalyst at steam-to-carbon ratios (S/C) = 0.27-6.3 at 873 K. Increasing S/C ratios led to increasing, then stable, and finally decreasing, methane conversion, suggesting that the rate-determining step of reaction is a surface reaction...
