We present aerosol-derived alloy powders as a uniquely useful platform for studying the contribution of the metal phase to multifunctional supported catalysts. The approach is illustrated through synthesis of single phase PdZn which was used to determine the intrinsic Methanol Steam Reforming reactivities of the components of the Pd/ZnO system.
