Abstract

The steam reforming of toluene has been studied on three catalysts with vanadium (0.9, 1.75, 3%) derived from hydrotalcites precursors (Mg/Al molar ratio 3) in the temperature range 400–500 °C. Catalysts were characterized by BET, XRD, SEM, TEM, FT-IR and then a correlation between physico-chemical characteristics and catalytic activity for toluene steam reforming has been done. The results showed that the catalyst with 3% V, with polyvanadate species, achieves the best catalytic activity, with a toluene conversion of 77.5%, at 500 °C, and a H2 composition of 57%.
