Abstract: The methane esteri cation process was carried out at 180ºC in an autoclave containing oleum, using palladium as a catalyst. Then methyl esters were converted into methanol. The influence of the pressure on methane conversion and products yields was studied. The methane pressure was either varied from 1.5 to 5 MPa or was kept constant at 3.0 MPa. In the last case, the partial pressure of methane was changed by addition of nitrogen as the inert gas into the autoclave. At the constant methane partial pressure, the total pressure changes have no influence on the process. Only the methane partial pressure influences the process.
