This project aims to investigate a novel core-shell redox catalyst for combined methane partial oxidation and water-splitting. The effect of support, mechanism, and novel applications of perovskite supported iron oxide as a versatile redox catalyst are investigated. Properly designed redox catalyst are shown to be highly effective for syngas production from methane and water-splitting. The resulting syngas has a composition readily usable for Fischer-Tropsch synthesis whereas the hydrogen generated is of high purity. In addition, coke formation can be avoided if the redox catalyst is regenerated before complete reduction of iron oxide into metallic iron. High syngas selectivity, steam to hydrogen conversion, and inhibition of coke formation are observed in the current study.
