The Cu-type and (Cu-Fe)-type film catalysts have been successfully prepared by the electroless plating on ZnO nanorods/stainless steel substrates. The microstructure features of the (Cu-Fe)-type films are high porosity and plate-type grains. The addition of iron into Cu-type film can improve the reducibility and the stability of the film catalysts. The reduction temperature of the (Cu-Fe)-type film catalysts decreases with increasing the addition of Fe. For Cu-5 at% Fe film, the reduction temperature is in the range of 195°C to 216°C as comparison in the range of 208°C to 233°C of the Cu-type film catalysts.
