Abstract

Deuterium isotope effects in the CO2-reforming of methane to syngas were first investigated over SiO2-supported rhodium catalysts. Normal deuterium isotope effect was more noticeable on the methane conversion reaction than on the CO formation reaction, while there was no such effect on the CO2 conversion reaction. It can be concluded that the dissociation of the C-H bond in methane is a key step and some CO is formed by the reverse water-gas shift reaction.
