Catalytic steam reforming of bio-derived oxygenates is a viable technology for hydrogen production to fit in distributed-production strategy with minimal carbon footprint. Developing an understanding of the nature and transformations of cobalt during steam reforming of these bio-derivable liquids would enable tailoring of catalysts with improved activity and stability.
