The production of hydrogen from isooctane over three rhodium-based catalysts has been examined. The reaction entailed total oxidation of a proportion of the fuel followed by reforming of isooctane to produce hydrogen. Rhodium (1% wt) was impregnated on three different supports: alumina, ceria-alumina, and ceria-zirconia. No differences in catalytic activity were observed, but reaction yield changed with the support. Ceria-zirconia was found to be the preferred support since methanation did not occur over the catalyst.
