This work introduces a novel composite bimetallic perovskite Fe 2O 3-NiO/La 0.6Sr 0.4FeO 3 as an oxygen carrier for chemical looping hydrogen production. The materials were tested in a 2-g packed bed reactor at different temperatures ranging from 500 to 900 °C and atmospheric pressure by alternating three-stage chemical looping hydrogen reactions. Fe[sbnd]Ni bimetallic interactions and La 0.6Sr 0.4FeO 3 (LSF-641) resistance to carbon deposition resulted in a stable material with only a 2% oxygen capacity drop over 20 redox cycles. The modified LSF exhibited a 20 increase in H 2 generation compared to LSF-641. These results demonstrate the effectiveness of doping Fe with Ni to generate more stable OC and the low H 2 generation of LSF coupled with its greater redox cycling. Pre- and post-experimental (SEM-EDX) characteristics showed a homogenous distribution of Ni and Fe on the surface, thus confirming high stability to metal oxide cluster formation or sign of sintering.
