Methane can be converted to ethane and ethylene in a microwave plasma reactor at pressures from 10 to 100 mm Hg. The total methane conversion has a linear correlation with power •(45 + pressure)/flow and can be as high as 90%. The conversion of methane to ethylene varies from 0 to 11%. It reaches a maximum at a value of Power •(45 + Pressure)/Flow of 2200 W•mm Hgs/mL. The energy efficiency of driving this thermodynamically unfavourable reaction is 2 ~ 8 %.
