Abstract

original image

Getting a Head of Steam (Reforming) The cover picture shows a perovskite NaCeTi2O6-supported Ni catalyst being used for the steam reforming of methane (SRM). In their full paper on p. 1783 ff., Shenghong Zhang, Mizuki Tada et al. describe their perovskite catalyst and suggest that its characteristic performance is related to its basic character and oxygen conducting behavior. They also postulated that the basicity and oxygen conducting behavior of NaCeTi2O6 could regulate the affinity to H2O and the deactivative oxidation of Ni, resulting in the preferable SRM performances on the Ni/NCT catalyst.
