Impregnated layer combustion synthesis consists of impregnating a solution of metal nitrates and glycine in a porous media such as cellulose paper. The media is ignited and the reaction propagates as a front yielding porous oxide particles. The resulting catalysts are active and selective for hydrogen production from light alcohols.
