Abstract

The initial rate of the hydrogenolysis of ethane was measured over Ni and Pd catalysts at different partial pressures of C2H6 and H2. The experimentally obtained rate is in excellent agreement with a recently proposed mechanism, in which both ethane and hydrogen are adsorbed dissociatively, and the kinetically slow rupture of the C-C bond occurs in an interaction with molecular hydrogen.
