Research highlight: Deactivating and Non‐Deactivating Coking Found on Ni‐Based Catalysts during Combined Steam‐Dry Reforming of Methane

This work provided a fundamental understanding of coke and coking to achieve the desire performance for the Ni-based catalysts typically employed in the industrial via the control over the formation of deactivating coke – amorphous (Cβ), carbide (Cγ), and graphitic coke (CC) that associated directly to the catalyst performance. This suggested that one select CSDRM over DRM due to the promotional effect of steam associated with the mitigation of the total deactivating coke via the blocking of amorphous coke formation and the appropriate temperature prevent Cγ and CC formation.
