The direct oxidation of methane (CH4) to formaldehyde (HCHO) with molecular oxygen (O2) as the sole oxidant was studied over various bismuth-based catalysts (BiPO4, α-Bi2O3, β-Bi2O3) using a fixed-bed flow reactor. The catalytic activity of monoclinic BiPO4 nanoparticles (BiPO4-DEG) synthesized in a mixed solvent of diethylene glycol (DEG) and water for the direct oxidation of CH4 was the highest among the catalysts tested. In high temperature region, BiPO4-DEG was more selective for HCHO formation than FePO4 nanoparticles. Based on mechanistic studies including the catalyst effect, kinetics, pulse-reaction experiments, infrared (IR) spectroscopy, operando near ambient pressure X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (NAP-XPS), and density functional theory (DFT) calculations, surface active oxygen species generated on BiPO4 possibly react with CH4 to give HCHO as the primary product.
