Recebido em 28/8/10; aceito em 5/5/11; publicado na web em 8/7/11 PRODUCTION OF SYNTHESIS GAS BY THERMAL PLASMA VIA PYROLYSIS OF METHANE AND CARBON DIOXIDE. In this work the production of synthesis gas from a mixture of methane (CH 4 ) and carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) by thermal plasma was studied. The best relation found for the gas mixture [CO 2 ]/[CH 4 ] was 1.3. Under the excess of CH 4 in the gas mixture soot was formed and also benzene, indene and naphthalene were identified. The disulfides
