Among the various metal oxides investigated in past, Ni-ferrite and Co-ferrite are considered to be the best materials in the ferrite class for the production of H2 and CO via thermochemical H2O/CO2 splitting cycle. It was reported by various researchers (including us) that these ferrites are capable of producing higher levels of H2/CO in multiple thermochemical cycles as compared to other ferrite materials.
To investigate further, in this study we have synthesized Ni-Co-ferrite (combining Ni-ferrite and Co-ferrite) by using propylene oxide assisted sol-gel method. We believe that this combination will provide a chance to utilize the advantages of both Ni-ferrite and Co-ferrite towards splitting of H2O/CO2 in multiple cycles.
