Water/oil microemulsion for the preparation of robust La-hexaaluminates for methane catalytic combustion

Robust and highly effective Fe-substituted and non-substituted La-Hexaaluminate methane combustion catalysts have been prepared via coprecipitation in “water-pools” of Water/Oil microemulsions with dual nonionic surfactants, followed by ethanol supercritical drying and post-annealing.
