Catalytic reforming of logistic fuels at high-temperatures

This chapter reviews recent studies of catalytic reforming of logistic fuels at high-temperature. Aside from steam and autothermal reforming, special consideration is given to partial oxidation conditions. Natural gas, gasoline, diesel, and ethanol containing fuels are discussed. Methane and iso-octane as fuel surrogates are exemplarily used to explain the behavior of the reformers in particular focusing on the interaction of heterogeneous and homogeneous chemical reactions and mass and heat transport. As catalyst of choice for reforming, rhodium-based systems are in the focus of this review but alternate catalysts are noted as well.
