Abstract

We present new results on the activation of methane over pure and doped gallium oxide catalysts. This material was selected from our earlier work on methane to methanol conversion over mixed oxide systems. Calculations show that for defect free surfaces of the β-Ga2O3 phase only the (010) and (001) facets are stable, suggesting that the real crystal surfaces will be defective. We have attempted to increase the surface concentration of defects further by doping with divalent cations. Zn doping leads to a reduction in the temperature required for methane oxidation over β-Ga2O3 while Mg doping increases the intrinsic activity.
