It was shown by a kinetic method that carbon, monoxide is not the sole precursor of carbon dioxide in the oxidation of methane.Comparison of rates of accumulation of C02 with the rate of its formation from CO shows that only about 25% of the C02 is formed by the oxidation of CO.By the reduction of C14O2 with zinc, C140 of high activity was obtained in 98% yield.
