The biogas produced from the anaerobic decomposition of organic material has almost equal concentrations of methane (CH4) and carbon dioxide (CO2). The dry methane reforming (DRM) combines these gases generating carbon monoxide (CO) and hydrogen (H2).

That is why DRM has received greater interest because it is an attractive and promising for conversion of greenhouse gases into synthesis gas (syngas) or prior to the manufacture of many chemical products.

Ferrocene is an organometallic compound, consisting of a magnetic Fe atom placed in between two cyclopentadienil organic rings. When placed on top of a metallic surface, ferrocene molecules tend to self-organize, i.e., to form a perfectly uniform bidimensional lattice.

Self-molecular assembly occurs when independent organic molecules “decide” (so to speak) to arrange regularly and uniformly, all by themselves, on top of, e.g., a metallic surface. This process allows to fabricate ultrathin organic monolayers, with potentially crucial implications for nanotechnological, chemical and biological applications.
