Abstract

In the fields of energy science, it is a challenging issue to develop a highly active catalyst for hydrogen-rich gas production from biomass-derived compounds. In the present study, active reforming catalysts for use of gasification of glucose, biomass-derived compound, in aqueous medium were developed by deposition of platinum on active carbon (AC) support using nanotechnological approaches in supercritical carbon dioxide (ScCO2) media and impregnation (IMP) in aqueous media. Effects of reduction methods for platinum metal and chemical treatment for AC support were evaluated for hydrogen production activity.
