The catalyst Ni/MgO (Ni: 15 wt%) has been applied to methane reforming reactions, such as steam reforming of methane (SRM), partial oxidation of methane (POM), and oxy-steam reforming of methane (OSRM). It showed high activity and good stability in all the reforming reactions. Especially, it exhibited stable catalytic performance even in stoichiometric SRM (H2O/CH4 = 1). From TPR and H2 pulse chemisorption results, a strong interaction between NiO and MgO results in a high dispersion of Ni crystallite. Pulse reaction results revealed that both CH4 and O2 are activated on the surface of metallic Ni over the catalyst, and then surface carbon species react with adsorbed oxygen to produce CO.
