Ni nanoparticles were precipitated on Al2O3 support powder by rotary chemical vapor deposition (RCVD). The Ni nanoparticle size increased from 8 to 62 nm in diameter and the content of Ni decreased from 6.6 to 2.4 mass % with increasing Al2O3 powder diameter (DAl2O3) from 80 nm to 150 µm. The catalytic activity of Ni precipitated Al2O3 (Ni/Al2O3) powder was evaluated by the hydrogen production rate (RH2) in a methanol-steam flow. The RH2 decreased with increasing DAl2O3 and increased with increasing specific surface area of Ni/Al2O3 powder. The highest RH2 of Ni/Al2O3 powder was 709 × 10−3 mol kg−1 s−1 at 633 K, DNi = 8 nm and DAl2O3 = 80 nm.
