Photocatalytic conversion of methane
Various efforts have been carried out to convert methane to more useful chemicals and hydrogen. However, due to its high stability, high energy is usually consumed for its conversion, which still remains as a problem to be solved. Recently, photocatalysis has been proposed to be one of the answers to break the thermodynamic barrier. This tutorial review provides a brief history about developments in the methane conversion and specially highlights the developments in the photocatalytic conversion of methane, such as methane coupling and methane conversion with other molecules.
