Aqueous Phase Reforming of Glycerol Over the Pd Loaded Ni/Al2O3 Catalysts
Abstract:Bifunctional catalysts containing (0.5–1.5 wt%) palladium and 15 wt% of Nickel supported on -Al2O3 were prepared via an impregnation technique and catalysts were characterzed by XRD BET surface area and SEM, respectively. The aqueous phase reforming of glycerol (APR) was conducted over alumina-supported catalysts at different reaction conditions for catalytic activity. Finally, we concluded that the 1.0 wt% Pd 15 wt% Ni/-Al2O3 catalyst evidences higher conversion, hydrogen selectivity, lower alkane selectivity and CO production. This indicate that Pd loaded Ni/-Al2O3 could be a potential catalyst for the APR of glycerol.
