    If my limited understanding is correct, I should be able to heat a sample of methane to a certain temperature where all the hydrogen would dissociate from the carbon. Or is it possible to accomplish the same thing by exposing the methane to a certain wavelength of EM? How would I figure out the required temperature or wavelength of EM? And once I've accomplished the dissociation what happens to the hydrogens and the carbons?

    Thanks PhDemon. When I get the methyl radicals, do I need to worry about ethane forming?
