Reaction of glycerol steam reforming to hydrogen studied over binary nickel-zirconium oxide catalysts. Shown that the major products of the reaction of steam reforming glycerol over nickel oxide are hydrogen, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide and methane, while on zirconium oxide in significant quantities formed and acrolein. Found that temperature greatly affects to the distribution of obtained reaction products. Thus at low temperatures over studied binary catalysts are formed mainly various hydrocarbons and oxygen-containing compounds, whereas at high temperatures the reaction proceeds toward the formation of hydrogen. It found that binary nickel-zirconium oxide catalysts with high content of nickel or zirconium exhibit high activity in the reaction of hydrogen generation.
