The mesoporous gamma-alumina (γ-Al2O3) synthesized via evaporation-induced self-assembly method (EISA) using inorganic salt, Al(NO3)3·9H2O precursor and water-ethanol solvent mixture was implemented as a support for Co catalyst in methane dry reforming at 973–1073 K under 1 atm. The γ-Al2O3 support possessed filament-shaped morphology with surface area of 173.4 m2 g−1 and cobalt nanoparticles were successfully dispersed on support with small crystallite size of 7.8 nm. The stability of 10%Co/Al2O3 was evident for CH4 and CO2 conversions at 1023 and 1073 K. CH4 conversion could reach to 76.2% while 81.6% was observed for CO2 conversion at 1073 K. Although graphitic and amorphous carbons were unavoidably formed on used catalyst, 10%Co/Al2O3 exhibited an outstanding performance comparable to noble metals with the desired ratio of H2/CO for downstream Fischer-Tropsch process.
