We analyze the main kinetic features of the Catalyitic Partial Oxidation of methane, propane, propylene and isooctane, focusing on reaction kinetics and carbon formation tendency. The formation of C-species as a function of temperature is followed by combining kinetic investigations in annular microreactor with Raman measurements of the catalyst surface.
