Abstract

The activity of bimetallic Ni-Cu catalysts in ethanol steam reforming was evaluated and compared to the activity of the corresponding monometallic Ni catalyst. Copper addition positively affected the catalytic activity only if the proper metal-support interactions, as well as the proper ratio between the different reducible species, were maintained. This target can be pursued by tuning the synthesis conditions. Graphical Abstract: [Figure not available: see fulltext.].
