Mission nickel part I: Nickel nanoparticle growth on Ni–hexaaluminate is assessed by STEM and X-ray powder diffraction methods before and after reduction. The study focuses on the influence of parameters such as Ni substitution degree, mirror plane cation (La, Sr, and Ba), and calcination temperature. A reduction mechanism is proposed (see picture).
