The oxidative coupling of methane was studied at fixed conversion in different reactors types, varying the ratio of the gas volume and the catalytic surface area. The C2 selectivity varies linearly with the volume to catalyst surface ratio. Based on this observation an optimum reactor configuration is proposed.
