Oxidation of Rh/Ce0.5Zr0.5O2 Reduced under Mild Conditions as an Initiator of n-Butane Oxidative Reforming at Ambient Temperature

Reform Act: Rh/Ce0.5Zr0.5O2 is reduced in a H2 atmosphere at 373 K (140 K lower than the catalytic autoignition temperature) and in situ by H2 during oxidative reforming (OR). Oxidation of the reduced catalyst triggers OR of n-butane at ambient temperature even under non-adiabatic conditions.
