Mesostructured cellular foam (MCF) silicas synthesized at different conditions were incorporated with nickel to synthesize nickel functionalized MCF catalysts. Morphologies of the MCF silicas and the catalysts were characterized using nitrogen adsorption-desorption, scanning electron microscope (SEM) and energy dispersive X-ray (EDX). Activities of the catalysts were evaluated based on solventless deoxygenation of palmitic acid for 6 h at 300 oC under inert atmosphere in a semi batch reactor for production of n-pentadecane and 1-pentadecene as hydrocarbon fuels. Palmitic acid conversion of 86.4% with n-pentadecane selectivity of 31.8 % and 1-entadecene selectivity of 29.2 % was achieved by a catalyst using TEOS amount of 9.2 ml and aging time of 3 days in the MCF syntheses. The highest activity of the catalyst was attributed to the highest nickel content together with the smallest nickel particles dispersed in the catalyst.
