The composite Ni/Al2O3-SiC catalyst was designed and synthesized for hydrogen production from propane partial oxidation. Through the composite of high thermal conductivity SiC and porous solid acid Al2O3, it improved the shortcoming of sintering and inactivation of high-temperature reaction for Ni-based catalysts. The samples were characterized by X-ray diffraction, N2 physical adsorption, scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, and thermogravimetric analysis etc. From the results, the SiC doped catalyst exhibited superior catalytic properties for hydrogen production by propane partial oxidation. By doping SiC with high thermal conductivity to Al2O3 support, the catalyst was improved for sintering and carbon deposition resistance and reducing the aggregation of Ni active sites reflected by improving the stability of hydrogen production.
