    Combustion synthesis is an attractive method for the processing of catalysts due to the production of ultrafine metal powders. Binary nickel metals were prepared via this method, using 75% in excess of glycine. Analysis on temperature programmed reduction was carried out. The effect of binary metals on nickel, Ni0.15X0.85 (X = Ce, Fe, Al, Zr) was investigated on the hydrogen production for steam reforming of methane. The performance of the catalysts was evaluated based on methane conversion and hydrogen yield. Ni0.15Al0.85 showed the highest catalytic activity.
