The results show that methanation activity increases in the order Co<Ni<<Rh. The activity of Ni/ZrO2 catalysts changes with the crystalline phase of the support. The higher activity when monoclinic ZrO2 is used as support, suggests differences in adsorption capacity and the presence of different sites on the catalytic surface.
