Hanging in the balance: With the potential of cellulose as an alternative resource in the production of sugar alcohols, developing inexpensive non-precious catalysts is an essential requirement to reduce the overall system cost. This study evaluates the impact of preparation conditions on the acid/metal balance (see picture) and catalytic performance of a series of well-characterized carbon nanofiber supported nickel catalysts.
