Title
Preparation, characterization and activities of the nano-sized Ni/SBA-15 catalyst for producing COx-free hydrogen from ammonia
Abstract

Ni/SBA-15 catalysts that are used in ammonia decomposition to produce COx-free hydrogen were prepared by a deposition–precipitation (DP) method and investigated by N2 adsorption/desorption, XRD, TEM and H2-TPR techniques. The results show that not only the nano-sized nickel particles with narrow distribution could be obtained, but also the ordered mesostructures of the Ni/SBA-15 catalysts could be achieved during the preparation process. The amount of formed nickel phyllosilicate increases with prolonging the DP time, while surface areas and pore sizes of samples decrease relatively. These Ni/SBA-15 catalysts exhibit higher performance than other Ni-based catalysts and even some supported Ru catalysts. Ammonia conversion is more than 96% at 873 K with GHSVNH3GHSVNH3 of 46,000 ml/h g-cat. Additionally, the Ni/SBA-15 catalyst is very stable during catalytic evaluation operation due to the strong interactions between nickel grains and SBA-15 support.

Graphical abstractNi/SBA-15 catalysts that are used in ammonia decomposition to produce COx-free hydrogen have been prepared by a deposition–precipitation (DP) method. The results show that the samples with nano-sized nickel particles (4–7 nm) and narrow nickel particle distribution could be obtained easily and exhibit high catalytic efficiency and stability for ammonia decomposition.
