Sulfur Converts Methane Controllably
Sulfur can controllably convert methane to ethylene in the presence of MoS2, RuS2, TiS2, and other sulfide catalysts, according to an experimental and theoretical study (Nat. Chem., DOI: 10.1038/nchem.1527). The finding may open new routes to exploiting natural gas reserves to address challenges caused by shrinking petroleum supplies. Natural gas, which is mostly methane, is relatively abundant in many . . .
