Catalysts prepared using three dimensional SBA-16 silica support (composed of micropores and cage-like mesopores) were tested in the reaction of methane dry reforming, in comparison with 2D hexagonal mesoporous SBA-15 support. The samples were evaluated by N2 sorption and X-Ray diffraction (XRD) for the assessment of their textural and structural properties. The reducibility was characterized by temperature programmed reduction (TPR). The catalytic performances were evaluated in methane dry reforming and spent catalysts (after reaction) were characterized for the evaluation of sintering and coke formation by TPH/MS, XRD and HR-TEM.
Key words: Mesoporous silica / methane dry reforming / pore geometry / sintering resistance
