The authors developed-and are now using a new experimental technique with which it is possible to isolate and quantitatively study kinetic steps occurring during the heterogeneous conversion of methane to higher hydrocarbons. Measurements of gas-phase methyl radical concentrations (as well as concentrations of stable reactants and products) along the catalyst bed are being used to gain quantitative knowledge of the chemical kinetics of the oxidative coupling of methane to C2 compounds. In this paper they describe the experimental technique, discuss the kinds of observations being made, and present conclusions which can be drawn about elementary processes occurring during the oxidative coupling of methane promoted by the catalyst 1%Sr/La2O3.
