Paper Abstract

The effect of high solar flux on the catalytic methapation reaction has been investigated. Irradiation of the nickel catalyst at a flux of 1.4 MW/m2 resulted in a 100% increase in methane yield for the reaction. This high flux photo-enhancement is believed to be due to photo-enhanced dissociation of the CO molecule on the nickel catalyst surface.
