        Ni, Al, Mn, kieselguhr catalysts were prepared by the following methods, and the % of the Ni removed by ammoniacal treatment, extraction with HNO3, and with HCl, respectively, are:  Precipitation at low temperature 100, ----, ----; boiling of the precipitate, 63, 37, ----; desorption under vacuum at 150 to constant weight, 63, 37, ----; heating for 2 hr. at 220 in N2, 59, 13, 28; heating at 320 to constant weight in N2, 18, 46, 36; heating at 450 to constant weight in N2, 16, 40, 44; heating for 48 hr. at 220 in N2, 33, 59, 8; heating at 450 after the preceding treatment, 20.5, 59.5, 20.  An X-ray diffraction study of these catalysts is summarized.
