Calculating the products of high-temperature conversion of methane under pressure


The authors show that in calculating the equilibrium composition of the products of conversion of methane by oxygen under a pressure of Pabs = 300 kg/cm2 the results are the same whether or not use is made of the volatilities of the components.
