U S Pat 4 071 473 1978 Jan; :
A method for preparing a catalyst is described, which comprises: (a) forming an alloy of a first metal selected from the group consisting of nickel, cobalt, iron, and mixtures thereof with a second metal selected from the group consisting of yttrium, the rare- earth metals, and mixtures thereof, said first metal making up from 5 to 95 weight percent of said alloy; and (b) reacting said alloy with a gas consisting of h2 and CO at a temperature sufficiently high for a time sufficiently long to oxidize said second metal.
