Abstract

The manuscript deals on the main progress achieved by global scientific research on the development of nanostructured catalysts for dry-reforming reaction. The importance to have a global visionon this topic is strictly related to the most currently and important challenges in the sustainableenergy production. In fact, dry-reforming is one of the few known processes in which greenhousegases are utilized as reactants (methane and carbon dioxide) to produce syngas. Syngas represents the basis for liquid fuel production by Fischer-Tropsch process. In this broad and currentcontext, the catalyst development plays a pivotal role due to its great influence on efficiency, andtherefore on the costs, of the whole process. Several are the aspects to consider during the catalystdesign: role of metal, interaction between metal and support, role of promoters and resistance tothe coke deactivation. These issues, as well as the thermodynamics of the process, are the mainaspects of which this review speaks about
