Microwave catalytic synthesis of ammonia from methane and nitrogen

Author affiliations

Abstract

This study presents our recent findings that under microwave irradiation and/or microwave plasma conditions, nitrogen can react with methane to form ammonia and other value-added by-products, hydrogen and carbon nanotubes, at atmospheric pressure. Microwave catalysis alters current industrial processes to enable most difficult reactions to take place under mild conditions.
