In view of rising global demand for aromatics as starting chemical for many commodity goods as well as pharmaceuticals, new routes for production are explored. Since the advent of fracking, natural gas has become increasingly cheap and direct utilization for aromatics production has gained attractiveness. Methane dehydroaromatization represents...

The catalytic performance of the bifunctional catalyst Mo/HZSM-5 for methane dehydroaromatization (MDA) depends on the Mo dispersion and on zeolite acidity. Here we separately quantify the effect of dispersion and the effect of acidity on aromatic yields and coke selectivity. Also, the effect of porosity on the same is quantitatively...

The active sites on the methane dehydroaromatization (MDA) catalyst Mo/HZSM-5 are very hard to characterize, because they are present in various geometries and sizes and only form under reaction conditions with methane at 700 °C. To address these issues an experimental strategy is presented that enables distinguishing different active sites...

Mo/ZSM-5 is one of the most studied and efficient catalysts for the dehydroaromatization of methane (MDA), but the mechanism of its operation remains controversial. Here, we combine an ab initio thermodynamic analysis with a comprehensive mechanistic density functional theory study to address Mo-speciation in the zeolite and identify the...

Non-oxidative methane dehydroaromatization is a promising reaction to directly convert natural gas into aromatic hydrocarbons and hydrogen. Commercialization of this technology is hampered by rapid catalyst deactivation because of coking. A novel approach is presented involving selective oxidation of coke during methane dehydroaromatization...
