An environmentally friendly auxiliary power unit requires catalysts operating in the cyclic mode, producing H2 at a steady rate with high CO2 selectivity and minimum CO clean-up. Here, 1% Pt/CeO2 catalyst was synthesized using the solution combustion synthesis method and investigated toward methane steam reforming reaction. Preliminary tests were performed by varying the steam-to-carbon ratio (S/C), gas hourly space velocity (GHSV), and time-on-stream (TOS). The catalyst showed nearequilibrium CH4 conversion and high H2 concentration (75% dry basis, N2-free) obtained at S/C = 2.8 and GHSV = 24 000 h−1. The catalytic activity was stable after 25 cycles of start-up and shut-down operations, equivalent to 150 h of TOS. X-ray diffraction, transmission electron microscopy, and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy techniques were used to characterize either the fresh and aged catalyst after 150 h of TOS.
