Abstract

Steam reforming of ethanol, C2H5OH+H2O→2CO+4H2, was carried out over Co/Al2O3, Co/SiO2, Co/MgO, Co/ZrO2 and Co/C. The properties of the Co catalysts were greatly affected by the supports. Co/Al2O3 exhibited the highest selectivity for steam reforming of ethanol by suppression of methanation of CO and decomposition of ethanol.
