Reaction of Ni2+ with H2PO2- in a eutectic mixture resulted in the formation of highly dispersed Ni2P nano particles on mesoporous and amorphous Ni3(PO4)2-NiHPO4. The catalyst thus prepared exhibited the high uptake of CO adsorption and thus the high activity for the hydrodesulfurization of dibenzothiophene and hydrodenitrogenation of quinoline.
