Atmospheric hydrodeoxygenation of guaiacol over Ni2P catalysts was investigated. Alumina, zirconia, and silica were selected as the supports. Supports are important in varying Ni2P morphologies. Intrisic chemistry of Ni2P catalysts based on pseudo-first-order kinetic analysis was conducted. Ni2P/SiO2, which hosted the smallest Ni2P clusters, is the most effective in oxygen removal.
