The reaction performance for C2H6-O2 to syngas over different supported metal catalysts was investigated in a flow-reactor. The activated behavior of ethane is different from that of methane over the supported nickel catalysts. Although there may exist a gas phase reaction at high temperatures, over a Ni (or Rh)/γ-Al2O3 catalyst, the partial oxidation of ethane to syngas is a heterogeneous process, while over a Pt (or Pd)/γ-Al2O3 catalyst, it may be a homo-heterogeneous process. The Ni/γ-Al2O3…
