Abstract : The proprietary refractory support has been prepared in a large quantity (100 gms) and has been used to fabricate a scaled-up batch of a catalyst. The scaled up catalyst preparation showed somewhat higher hydrazine decomposition activity than that of material processed in small batches. This improved catalyst activity is attributed to better dispersion of the metal on the surface of the large batch of substrate.
