Microemulsion prepared Ni88Pt12 for methane cracking

Abstract

Monodispersed Ni88Pt12 nanoparticles of 10 nm were synthesized by water-in-oil microemulsion. The Ni–Pt alloy structure was stable during the thermal treatment between 330 and 1037 °C, whereas the relatively low temperature range of 600–700 °C was favorable for methane cracking to produce hydrogen and carbon nanotubes.
