PdNi/Y2O3 catalysts shows higher CH4 and CO2 conversions compared to pure Ni or pure Pd catalyst. Further investigation shows that formation of bimetallic Pd-Ni particles plays an important role in the catalyst activity, while strong Pd-support interaction plays an important role in the Pd-Ni/Y2O3 catalyst stability in the OCRM reaction.
