Synthesis of low atomicity Ni nanoclusters is carried out in 10 nm diameter mesoporous alumina allowing the production of zerovalent ligand-free Ni nanoclusters estimated in 13 atoms. The size and shape of the Nickel entities inside the pores can be controlled by the current density applied during the reduction process. The nanoclusters show a superior performance as catalysts for the reduction of methylene blue.
