Title
Effect of support composition on the origin and reactivity of carbon formed during dry reforming of methane over 5 wt% Ni/Ce1−xMxO2−δ (M = Zr4+, Pr3+) catalysts
Abstract

•5 wt% Ni supported on Ce0.8Pr0.2O2−δ appears an efficient DRM catalyst.•Extent of “carbon” formation via CH4 and CO2 activation routes depend on reaction T and support composition.•Boudouard reaction is one of the main sources of inactive “carbon” formation.•Adsorbed CO derived from CH4 or CO2 activation leads to different kinds of “carbon”.•OSC of support is not correlated with “carbon” formation.

Carbon dioxide reforming of methane to synthesis gas in the 550–750 °C range over 5 wt% Ni/Ce1−xMxO2−δ (M = Zr4+, Pr3+) solids has been investigated with respect to the effects of support chemical composition and reaction temperature on the amount, reactivity (towards H2 and O2) and relative contribution of CH4 and CO2 activation routes towards “carbon” formation. For these “carbon” characterisation studies, various transient isothermal and temperature-programmed oxidation (TPO) and hydrogenation (TPH) experiments coupled with the use of 13CO and 13CO2 isotope gases were conducted. TPO following dry reforming (5%13CO2/5%12CH4/45%Ar/45%He) demonstrated that the relative amount of the various kinds of “carbon” formed via the CH4 and CO2 activation routes was strongly dependent on reaction temperature and support chemical composition. At 550 °C, the ratio of 12CO2 to 13CO2 of the 12C-containing and 13C-containing inactive “carbon” formed was 0.4, 0.27 and 0.19, whereas at 750 °C was 1.07, 1.06 and 0.29, respectively, for the 5 wt% Ni supported on Ce0.8Zr0.2O2, Ce0.8Pr0.2O2 and Ce0.5Zr0.5O2 carriers. The origin of “carbon” formation via the CO2 activation route was illustrated to be the Boudouard reaction (2CO-s → CO2(g) + C-s + s) through a transient isotopic experiment with a feed gas containing 13CO and 12CH4. It was also found that CO-s derived from the direct dissociation of CO2 and the CH4 activation route can lead to a number of different kinds of “carbon” which depends on support chemical composition. The present 5 wt% Ni/Ce0.8Pr0.2O2 catalytic system exhibited CO2 conversion of 84%, H2-yield of 48%, and H2/CO ratio of 1.04 after 50 h of dry reforming of methane at 750 °C (20% CH4, 20% CO2, He; GHSV = 30,000 h−1) with a relatively low amount (17.5 mg C/gcat or 1.75 wt%) of accumulated inactive “carbon”. The support chemical composition was found to influence the nickel particle size, which in turn influenced the origin, kinetics and the reactivity of “carbon” deposition under dry reforming reaction conditions.
