A series of zirconia doped Li/MgO catalysts with a fixed amount of zirconia and varying concentrations of lithium was used for the oxidative coupling of methane. It was found that an increase in lithium concentration resulted in a decrease in initial activity, while the selectivity was not affected. The life-time of Zr doped Li/MgO catalysts with a fixed concentration of ZrO2 is a function of the lithium concentration. Previous results have shown that Li2Mg3ZrO6 is active and selective but it is now shown to be instable under reaction conditions.
