Benzene was formed selectively among hydrocarbons produced in CH<SUB>4</SUB>-CO reaction over silica supported Rh, Ru and Pd catalysts at 573-723 K under atmospheric pressures, although CO<SUB>2</SUB> was the main product, which was formed by the disproportionation of CO. Addition of H<SUB>2</SUB> to CH<SUB>4</SUB>-CO reaction accelerated the rate of benzene formation several times, and the selectivity increased considerably.
