Interest in the reduction of NiMoО4-SiO2 is related to its promising use as catalysts in hydrodeoxygenation and hydrodesulfurization processes. By means of in situ X-ray diffraction phase transformations occurring during the hydrogen reduction of NiMoO4-SiO2 in the temperature range 30-700 °C are studied in this work. It is shown that the reduction of a-NiMoО4 proceeds in two stages. At the first stage, at 400-500 °C an intermediate state forms, which is a mixed oxide (Ni,Mo,□)O and Ni1- x Mo x . At the second stage, above 650 °C, two solid solutions form based on Mo and Ni structures. By the Rietveld method the structure of the intermediate state is refined. It is shown that the mixed Ni-Mo oxide forms based on the NiO structure, which contains some amount of cation vacancies.
