Abstract A series of cobalt-based catalysts with different supports have been prepared using impregnation method, and characterised by X-ray diffraction (XRD), laser Raman (LR), and infrared spectroscopy (IR). The catalytic activities for methane combustion were assessed in a micro-reactor. The ZrO 2 and Al 2 O 3 supports are themselves active in methane combustion, and ZrO 2 supported cobalt catalyst was found to have the highest activity amongst the TiO 2 , Al 2 O 3 , MgO supported catalysts… CONTINUE READING
