A study of carbon formation on Rh-substituted pyrochlore catalysts was conducted by measuring deposited carbon after varying times on stream reforming a surrogate diesel. Pyrochlore surface properties can be modified through metal substitutions; studying carbon formation on different surface sites can assist catalyst formula optimization by identifying carbon-resistant sites.
