The effect of low Rh contents was studied in Ni/ã-Al2O3 catalysts. Activity, stability and carbon deposition on these catalysts were analyzed for methane reforming with CO2. Catalysts were characterized by XRD, TGA, TPR and flow-reaction. Results indicated that the catalyst promoted by Rh showed a higher activity and a similar carbon deposition than the Rh and Ni monometallic catalysts. Rh addition favors an interaction compound in the Rh-Ni/ã-Al2O3 that would improve the methane reforming activity of the supported Ni-based catalysts.
