A new candidate anode material has been investigated for high temperature internal reforming fuel cell applications. Our investigation covers its physical properties, catalyst activation kinetics and catalytic activity for methane steam reforming. This report concerns mainly the catalytic activity of this material. Methane steam reforming was carried out at latm pressure and in the temperature range of 600 -900°C, which would be of interest for low-to-medium temperature IR-SOFC applications. It
