Methane Decomposition Nickel Catalysts Based on Structured Supports
New methane degradation nickel catalysts based on original and modified layered double hydroxides and multilayer carbon nanotubes have been synthesized. The synthesized systems have been characterized by a set of physicochemical methods, namely, X-ray diffraction (XRD) analysis, scanning electron microscopy, Raman spectroscopy, and the thermal method. The catalytic activity of the synthesized catalysts in the temperature range of 550–850°С has been studied. It has been shown that in the methane decomposition reaction, the sample with a modified Ni-containing layer exhibits two regions of catalytic activity (550–650 and 700–850°С), whereas the sample based on carbon nanotubes is characterized by a single region (700–850°С) and the system based on a layered double hydroxide does not show activity in the entire temperature range.
