Dehydrogenation of cyclohexane to benzene has been carried out over Ag supported on activated carbon cloth (Ag/ACC) catalysts using a spray- pulse reactor. Hydrogen evolution was studied for hydrogen storage and supply system applications. The maximum rate of hydrogen evolution rate using monometallic Ag/ACC catalysts was 6.9 mmol/gmet/min for Ag loading of 10 wt%. An enhanced hydrogen evolution was observed by adding a small amount of noble metal (1 wt% Pt, Pd, Rh) to the Ag based catalysts. A synergistic effect was observed in the case of the Pt promoted catalysts on the hydrogen production were twice as compared to 10 wt% Ag catalyst only.
