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.
