The aim of this work is to develop new catalysts to produce hydrogen through ethanol reforming at low temperatures, with low selectivity toward CO and high stability. In particular, the relationship between the performance of Ni/CeO2 and the shape effect of ceria with different shape-controlled nanostructures (rods, cubes) was investigated.
