چکیده:

Nanocrystalline zirconia with high surface area, mesoporous structure and pure tetragonal crystallite phase has been prepared by the surfactant-assisted route and employed as support for nickel catalysts in dry reforming. The synthesized samples were characterized by XRD, BET, H2 chemisorption and SEM techniques. The prepared zirconia showed a surface area of 174 m2 g-1 after calcination at 700ºC for 4 h. The XRD results showed that the tetragonal phase and mesoporous structure were stable towards higher temperatures. It wasshown that the 4%Ni/ZrO2 catalyst exhibited stable activity for syngas production with a decrease about 4% in methane conversion after 50 h of reaction. Addition of cerium oxide to the nickel catalyst improved its stability and decreased the coke deposition.
