Examined are the effects of varying Ni substitution levels on structural and catalytic effects including the segregation of Ba at the surface and its effect on basicity, carbon deposition and reaction rate during DRM.  This is the first statistically significant observation of hexaaluminate unit cell contraction after use in DRM.
