Catalysts activities were tested using different pretreatments. Instrumental neutron activation analysis (INAA) and x-ray diffraction (XRD) were used as characterization tools.  After reduction, catalysts had stable activity for methane conversion. Activity was strongly reduced with water in the feed.
