Abstract

original image

Three in one: The oxidation of methane to methyl derivatives, conversion of the methyl derivatives into oxygenated compounds, and regeneration of the oxidation media are the three steps involved in the catalytic partial oxidation of methane by MoO2Br2 supported on Zn-MCM-48 (see scheme). Reversible bromine metathesis between MoO2Br2 and MoO3 is key to the efficient catalytic process.
