The dry reforming of methane (DRM) using CO2 is a viable method for converting methane into syngas, which can be readily converted to a variety of chemicals. We use ab initio computational methods to describe the reaction mechanism on pyrochlore catalysts and thus guide experimental efforts to enhance their activity.
