 1666.    KARZHAVIN, V. A.  [Low-Temperature Conversion of Methane.]  Jour. Chem. Ind. (U.S.S.R.), vol. 10, No. 2, 1934, pp. 31-33; British Chem. Abs., 1934, B, p. 611; Chem. Abs., vol. 28, 1934, p. 3873.

       Complete conversion of CH4 and H2O into CO2 and H2 at 500-600 is possible only when the CO2 produced is immediately removed from the reaction gases by CaO. The reaction is catalyzed by Ni, which is, however, rapidly inactivated by traces of S in the gas.
