The Cu, Co, Fe, Ni metals supported with Al2O3, CeO2, TiO2, ZrO2 were prepared using the wetness impregnation technique. Then the X-ray Diffraction (XRD) characterization of oxidized and reduced samples were obtained and presented. The kinetic analysis using Thermogravimetric analyzer (TGA) of the synthesized samples was conducted. The kinetics of reduction reaction of all samples were estimated and explained.
