Reaction mechanisms for hexadecane
1) Surface reactions: Steam reforming of hexadecane over a Rh/CeO2 catalyst in microchannel reactor
Evaluation: evaluated by comparison between calculated and experimentally determined conversion, selectivity , and species concentrations in a microchannel reactor at ambient pressure, temperature 673 - 973K, steam to carbon ratio (S/C) = 3 -8 by variation of the residence time inside the microchannels between 38 and 220 ms. Furthermore, the model is evaluated at supplemental feeding of products (H2, CO, CO2).
