The direct conversion of methane to methanol has the potential of substantially reducing methane emissions and flaring, as such a process might provide an alternative for remote natural gas locations. In this report, we investigate the performance of a range of Cu-exchanged mordenite zeolites as active materials for such a reaction, employing a stepwise protocol comprising activation in oxygen, methane loading, and methanol extraction with steam. We employ in situ HERFD XANES, FT-IRdoi:10.1016/j.cattod.2020.06.050 fatcat:qjacwoe5ijbtxbslnzgc7cvfve
