Catalytic Performance of Monolithic Foam Ni/SiC Catalyst in Carbon dioxide Reforming of Methane to Synthesis Gas

Carbon dioxide reforming of methane to synthesis gas has been investigated with Ni catalysts supported on monolithic foam SiC, which were prepared by the initial wetness impregnation method. The catalyst of 7 wt%Ni/SiC was verified to be the best one in different Ni content catalysts. Compared with other catalysts such as 7 wt%Ni/SiO2 and 7 wt%Ni/Al2O3, the 7 wt%Ni/SiC catalyst exhibited not only the highest activity but also remarkable stability and excellent coke resistance during 100 h reaction. Furthermore, the conversion of CO2 and CH4 remained at about 96% and 94%, respectively in 100 h reaction time. The structure and properties of the catalysts were characterized by BET, XRD, H2-TPR, XPS and TEM techniques.
