Using a custom-built tubular reactor for the ESEM, we have investigated the importance of phase transitions during the production of synthesis gas from CO2
mixtures. In particular, oxide-metal transition was of great importance for the activity. Activation energies from operando measurement are consistent with fixed bed reactors. Hysteresis in CO production during heating and cooling was found and correlated with surface behavior.
