The Inhibition Effect of Potassium Addition on Methane Formation in Steam Reforming of Acetic Acid over Alumina-supported Cobalt Catalysts
The inhibition effect of potassium addition on methane formation in steam reforming of acetic acid over alumina-supported cobalt catalyst has been studied. Co–K/Al<SUB>2</SUB>O<SUB>3</SUB> catalyst showed much higher activity for hydrogen generation and much lower selectivity for methane than Co/Al<SUB>2</SUB>O<SUB>3</SUB>. Potassium addition resulted in the inhibition of methanation process. The similar effect was also observed in methanol and ethanol reforming reactions.
