Nickel supported on alumina and promoted by Ru, Ce and Zr, were investigated for ATR of n-dodecane. Catalysts were prepared by sol-gel method and characterized by different spectroscopic and physical techniques. NiCeZrAl2O3 catalyst was found to be optimum for high catalytic activity, stability, low coking and good resistance to sintering.
