        Ni-Al2O3-kieselguhr catalyst was shown to contain Ni aluminate and Ni silicate after being heat-treated to 450.  The aluminate is active in synthesizing higher hydrocarbons; the silicate forms CH4 primarily.  The distance between the Ni atoms in these 2 compounds is believed to be the factor responsible for the specificity of their catalytic properties.
