Abstract

Heterogeneous catalysts hold various advantages, namely, easy to separate from their products, reusable and regarded as environmental friendly materials. The synthesis of immobilized Ni monometallic, Co monometallic and Ni-Co bimetallic by Tapanuli clay were carried out using intercalation method. Firstly, the synthesis of Na-Bentonite was conducted to provide sufficient area to immobilize bimetal in the clay interlayer. Secondly, Ni, Co and Ni-Co were immobilized in the Tapanuli clay interlayer. Several techniques, such as X-Ray Diffraction, Fourier Transform Infra Red and Energy Dispersive X-Ray Analysis were applied to characterize and compare the properties of the synthesized materials. The results showed that the insertion of Ni, Co and Ni-Co in the clay interlayer occurred through a cation exchange reaction. The Energy Dispersive X-Ray analysis for Ni-Co bimetallic showed that the immobilized Ni and Co in the clay is in the ratio of 1:1. Catalytic test with Gas Chromatography showed that Ni-Co bimetallic generates a higher yield percentage compared to Ni and Co monometallic.
