Abstract

original image

Doing fine with Ni–Fe: The calcination and reduction of a hydrotalcite precursor containing Ni and Fe ions gives uniform Ni–Fe alloy nanoparticles mixed with Mg(Ni, Fe, Al)O particles. The uniformity of the Ni–Fe alloy nanoparticles is connected to the catalyst′s high activity and resistance to coke formation in toluene and phenol steam reforming reactions.
