Fuel cell developers are investigating the generation of hydrogen from light hydrocarbons, such as methane or natural gas, for fuelling polymer electrolyte fuel cells (PEFCs). This study demonstrates generation of H-2 and CO by catalytic partial-oxidation of CH4 in air at atmospheric pressure on a ceria-supported platinum catalyst prepared by a novel solution-combustion method where platinum is present in ionically-substituted form. These catalysts at different platinum loadings showed methane conversion and hydrogen selectivity of 90 and 97%, respectively. Interestingly, there is little carbon deposition in the catalytic reactor even after prolonged reaction time. (C) 2002 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
