A catalyst composed of metallic nickel and molybdenum carbide has been fabricated for CO2 reforming of CH4. Aspects concerning the formation of Ni and Mo2C, their synergistic effects for CH 4 and CO2 activation, and the establishment of a redox cycle were studied. Due to the catalytic oxidation-recarburization cycle, the Ni-Mo2C catalyst is superior to the traditional metal carbide catalysts as verified by its stable activity in the dry reforming of CH 4 at atomspheric pressure.
