The aim of this work was to study the effect of substitution of La by Ce in the performance of La1-xCexNiO3 perovskite for the OSR of ethanol. This paper provided further insight on the nature of catalyst deactivation during OSR reaction, which is fundamental to the design of appropriated catalysts.
