Abstract

The aim of this study is to develop a noble-structured catalyst for methane decomposition to produce pure hydrogen. The Ni/Al2O3 structured catalyst, which was prepared by electroless plating with NaBH4 as the reducing agent, showed a higher activity and stability, indicating the advantage for ensuring the flow path. After a steam treatment to remove the deposited carbon, the decomposition performance of the structured catalyst was regenerated.
