One unsupported nickel catalysts (about 55 wt.% Ni) supported on SiO2, Al2O3, TiO2, Nb2O5, ZrO2, V2O5 and ZnO were characterized by pulse dynamic oxygen chemisorption measured at -78 °C and evaluated in the reaction of reductive amination of diethylene glycol. Correlation was obtained between their oxygen uptake and catalytic activity.
