Abstract

Amorphous Cu-Zr metallic alloys were studied as precursors to catalysts for methanol steam reforming to produce hydrogen. The alloy ribbons were prepared by single-roll rapid solidification, and the optimum pretreatment method and conditions were determined. The activity of the catalysts prepared by the improved pretreatment method was greater than that of previously prepared catalysts by two degrees of magnitude. The addition of a very small amount of Pt enhanced the activity without increasing CO formation.
