▪ Abstract 

The preparation of skeletal catalysts is considered, with particular reference to the preparation of skeletal nickel and skeletal copper. Skeletal catalysts have physical properties that are highly desired for some industrial processes, and the means of controlling these properties to optimize performance is reviewed. The preparation can be affected by the initial alloy composition, the quenching process, the leaching procedure, aging and by the addition of promoters. These processes may affect either or both the chemical and physical characteristics of the catalysts. Preparation procedures need to be adjusted for individual reactions if optimal performance is required. The effect of the preparation conditions on the structure and catalytic performance of these systems is reviewed.
