Cobalt-zirconium catalysts have been studied by X-ray phase analysis, TEM, temperature-programmed reduction with H2 (TPR). The most active samples are characterized by higher dispersity of both the sup- port (L = 10-15 nm) and the active component (L ≤ 3 nm); modification of ZrO2 by yttrium oxide leads to an increase the thermal stability of the catalysts. The activity of the catalysts was found to be defined by the strength of the oxygen-catalyst bonding, as well as by their surface acidic properties.

Key words cobalt-zirconium catalysts, deep oxidation of methane, structure-size factor.
