In the present work, different loadings of lanthanum cobalt supported on magnesia catalysts were prepared for the methane dry reforming. XRD results showed that the peaks representing Co3O occurred at 2 = 37.0° and MgO or Co/MgO at 2 = 42.9°, 62.3°, 74.7° and 78.6°. As lanthanum loading increased, the crystallite size dropped from 24.5 to 17.9 nm. Reaction studies found that 5wt% La catalyst gave the highest formation of H24 and CO. However, the product composition was only about 1.6% (differential reactor). It was also found that the best formation rate was at CO2:CH feed ratio of 0.67.4
