Abstract

Mesoporous nano-crystalline γ-Al2O3 with high surface area prepared by a microemulsion (ME) method was employed as carrier for nickel catalysts in dry reforming of methane for syngas production. The structural properties of the catalysts were characterized by X-ray diffraction, Brunauer–Emmett–Teller surface area analysis, temperature programmed reduction and oxidation and scanning electron microscopy techniques. Microemulsion showed it to be a promising way for the production of nano-crystalline aluminum oxide, and the nickel catalysts prepared with this support have significant features and properties to use in the dry reforming reaction. The results revealed that the prepared γ-Al2O3 exhibited a nano-crystalline structure (crystal size: c.4.8 nm) with a high specific surface area (308 m2 g−1). In addition, the catalysts with different nickel contents exhibited high catalytic activity in the dry reforming reaction. The results also showed that an increase in Ni loading from 5 to 15 wt% caused a decrease in the specific surface area and nickel dispersion.
