We present the activities and selectivities of Pt/Al2O3-based catalysts in the production of hydrogen from methanol through catalytic decomposition. For the decomposition reaction, the Pt and Pd catalysts promoted by ceria exhibit similar activity reaching 100% conversion at 315 C. Promoting with ceria had a positive effect on activity and selectivity… CONTINUE READING
