Abstract

Ni-based oxides are widely investigated as catalysts for CO2 methanation due to their high activity, high selectivity and low cost. The catalytic performances of Ni-based catalysts depend on support properties that strongly influence the dispersion of the catalytic active phase and the Ni–support interaction. Although the CO2 methanation is widely studied, the structure sensitivity of methanation on nickel is not completely assessed. Ni/CeO2 nanorods with different nickel/ceria molar ratios (0.05, 0.10, 0.20, 0.30) were prepared by one-pot hydrothermal synthesis. The effect of nickel content and metal particle size on catalytic activity and selectivity for CO2 methanation were studied using CO2:H2 = 1:4 stoichiometric ratio at high space velocity (300 L g−1 h−1). Sample structure and morphology were studied by X-ray diffraction (XRD), Brunauer–Emmet–Teller (BET) analysis, field-emission scanning electron microscopy/energy-dispersive spectroscopy (FE-SEM/EDS), H2-temperature programmed reduction (TPR), H2-temperature-programmed desorption (TPD). Both the CO production and the turnover frequency appear depending on nickel particle size, suggesting a structure sensitivity of the CO2 methanation on nickel supported on ceria.
