Access from EThOS:
Indications exist that the use of rare earth oxides as promoters or supports for Ni-based catalysts for steam reforming process may reduce carbon formation due to increased adsorption of water and carbon gasification. In this work, we studied the Ni/Al₂O₃, La-promoted Ni/Al₂O₃, Ni/La₂O₃ , and K-promoted Ni/La₂O₃ catalysts using temperature-programmed techniques.
