Low temperature activation of methane over a zinc-exchanged heteropolyacid as an entry to its selective oxidation to methanol and acetic acid

Author affiliations

Abstract

A Zn-exchanged heteropolyacid supported onto silica (Zn-HPW/SiO2) activates methane at 25 °C into Zn–methyl. At higher temperatures and with CH4/O2 or CH4/CO2, it gives methanol and acetic acid respectively.
