Perovskite-type oxides catalyst are of interest for various application such as auto-thermal reforming (ART), catalytic wet air oxidation (CWOA) and piezoelectric (PZT). In this paper, La1-xCexNiO3 (x= 0-0.4) perovskite-type oxides have been prepared b sol-gel process using PVA. The precursor was mixed metal ion and PVA with a mole ratio of 1:1 and 1:2. The decomposition during the calcinations process was evaluated by thermogravimetric analysis and differential thermal analysis. Phase of synthesized materials were characterized with X-ray diffraction. Morphological analysis and elemental composition of catalysts was determined by Scanning electron microscope and energy dispersion spectroscopy. The characterization results show that highly crystalline and homogeneous phase of these perovskite oxides were successfully synthesized by the sol-gel method via PVA as a complexing agent.
