Uniform nanosheets and nanoflower NiMoO4 structures have successfully been grown on γ-Al2O3 catalyst support using solvothermal method. The NiMoO4 structure could be controlled by varying the catalyst preparation temperature and precursor concentration. The conversion of propane and carbon dioxide into synthesis gas (CO+H2) was performed in an atmospheric-pressure plasma reactor packed with the NiMoO4/γ-Al2O3 catalysts at different temperature. The plasma substantially enhanced the propane and carbon dioxide conversion and increased the hydrogen yield. The nano-structured catalysts exhibited good catalytic activity and selectivity for the strongly endothermic dry reforming, and were chemically stable, resulting in enhanced resistance to coke formation and sintering. Notably, the catalytic activity of the NiMoO4/γ-Al2O3 led to stoichiometric reaction and negligible byproducts. The post-characterization of the used catalysts were characterized using scanning electron microscopy, temperature programmed oxidation, and Raman spectroscopy, which confirmed the less carbon formation and no structural deformation after the reforming reactions.

Young Sun Mok has received his BS degree in Chemical Engineering from Yonsei University, Seoul, Korea, in 1989, and the MS and PhD degrees in Chemical Engineering from the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), Daejon, Korea, in 1991 and 1994, respectively. He has been with the Department of Chemical Engineering, Jeju National University, Korea, since 2000. He has studied applications of non-thermal plasma to pollution (air/water) control, energy production and material synthesis, and he is widening his plasma research horizon to meet various industrial needs, including plasma-mediated hydrophobic coating of powdery materials, sterilization of microorganisms, heterogeneous catalyst preparation, etc.
