The lecture will start with a short overview on oxy-cracking of hydrocarbons over LiMgO catalyst. Radical species are being generated on the surface f the catalyst, inducing radical chain reactions in gas-phase. Non-equilibrium plasma was used in an attempt to generate these radicals independently, which lead us to the question how plasma’s and catalyst can cooperate. Therefore, the concepts of plasma will be explained and very recent results of two examples will be presented, i.e. methane coupling and ammonia synthesis
