This paper discusses structural characterizations of monolithic catalysts prepared by incorporating Ni and Co supported over a porous alumina and ceria layer by using respective nitrates and H2PtCl6 as precursors. Monolithic catalysts were synthesized by dip-coating of 400 cpsi cordierite ceramic monolithic pieces cut in 20 × 13 mm2 (L×D) into appropriate solutions of metals, followed by calcination in air at 800°C for 4 h. Phases of catalysts were characterized with X-ray diffraction. Morphological analysis and elemental composition were determined by scanning electron microscope and energy dispersive spectroscopy. The specific surface area analysis have been studied using the Brunauer-Emmett-Teller method. Metal contents were determined by inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectrometry.
