Preparation of A Catalyst Used in Hydrogenation Processes

Abstract

In this paper, the preparation of nickel catalyst supported on gamma alumina with high surface area was done; nickel sulphate was used as a source of nickel. Impregnation method was used in the preparation with two-stage, as it is known cannot use this method to prepare catalysts with a high content of metal Despite the ease and simplicity of it, so the solution is fragmented into two parts and download each part separately. Nickel content was measured in solution by atomic absorption device as well as the comparison was made between the prepared catalyst and commercial catalyst by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and X-ray deflection (XRD).
