Abstract In this work, we investigate oxidative steam reforming (OSR) of ethanol on a series of metals under various catalytic conditions (H 2 O/ethanol and O 2 /ethanol ratios) to understand the reaction mechanism and to optimize the catalytic conditions for optimal hydrogen production. There are three reaction pathways for OSR using these metals. Ethanol can be oxidized to acetaldehyde on Cu, Ag and Au, and it can be dehydrated to form ethylene on Co, Ni, Pd and Pt. Ethylene can form coke and… CONTINUE READING
