Abstract

The influence of complementary macropores, present in hierarchical macroporous mesoporous SBA-15, on the performance of supported Ni nanoparticles for ethanol steam reforming has been investigated. The increased open nature of the architecture, afforded through the incorporation of the secondary macropore network, enables superior metal dispersion. This, in turn, enhances catalytic hydrogen production performance through the generation of a greater density of active sites.
