The methane combustion reaction was conducted over Pb-ZSM-5 catalysts. ZSM-5 synthesized at low temperature and atomospheric pressure was used as a support. The change of methane conversion with $SiO_2/Al_2O_3$ molar ratio was tested. The methane conversions of the synthesized Pb-ZSM-5 catalyst was compared with those of a commercial Pd-ZSM-5(PQ Co.) and $PdO/{\gamma}-Al_2O_3$. The methane conversion increased with the decrease in $SiO_2/Al_2O_3$ molar ratio. The combustion rate of methane also increased with the decrease in $SiO_2/Al_2O_3$ molar ratio. The synthesized Pb-ZSM-5 showed better methane conversion than that of the commercial one. It is found that a crucial factor in methane combustion reaction is oxygen adsorption strength on the catalysts.
