Paper Title:
Synthesis of Ni-Al Intermetallic Nanoparticle Catalysts by Vacuum Arc Plasma Evaporation
  Abstract

In order to pursue high catalytic performance of Ni-Al intermetallic compounds for hydrogen production, we synthesized Ni-Al intermetallic nanoparticles from Ni-Al alloy ingots by vacuum arc plasma evaporation technique for the first time. The characterization of the synthesized nanoparticles was carried out using X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy. The catalytic properties of the Ni-Al nanoparticles for methanol decomposition were evaluated. It is found that the nanoparticles had a large surface area above 70 m2/g, and showed very high catalytic activity for methanol decomposition.
