The properties of supported bimetallic Rh-Co/ZrO2 catalysts in ethanol steam reforming into hydrogen-containing gas were studied. The particles of Rh-Co solid solutions on the catalyst surface were prepared by the thermal decomposition of the double complex salt [Co(NH3)6][Rh(NO2)6] and the solid solution Na3[RhCo(NO2)6]. It was found that the bimetallic Rh-Co/ZrO2 catalysts exhibited high activity in the reaction of ethanol steam reforming. The equilibrium composition of reaction products was attained at 500–700°C and a reaction mixture space velocity of 10000 h−1.
