The structure of supports (ceria and zirconia) for supported copper catalysts for the processes of hydrogen obtaining and purification is studied. The formation features of the structure of zirconia annealed at 300–1000°C are identified at different levels: the atomic one and the level of the structural arrangement of secondary particles when the formation of agglomerated block structures with large number of grain interfaces occurs. The formation process of copper oxides on different supports is studied.
