Abstract

The application and quantification of in situ copper K-edge X-ray absorption near-edge structure (XANES), when linked to independently made reactor-based studies of methanol production, result in a majority relation between the production of CuI and methanol from methane that complies with the expectations of a two-electron mechanism founded upon CuII/CuI redox couples.
