NixFe1-xO4 catalyst (where X = 0, 2) was prepared by using citric acid method from its precursor of nitrates. The catalyst furthermore is characterized by using X-ray diffiactometer, IR spectrophotometer, and EDX-SE microscopy. To examine its activity, the catalyst was used in CO2/H2 conversion at different temperatures (200 - 400 C) by varying the ratio of CO2/H2(3/l ; 4/l ; and 5/1) in gases feed. The experiment results indicated the dependency of CO2/H2 conversion on both temperature and feed ratio of CO2/H2, with the highest alcohol formation (almost 800 ppm) was achieved at 300 C under the ratio of CO2/H2(4/1,50 mL/ min;. Moreover, a more distributed product of alcohol compounds (such as methanol, ethanol and buthanol ) are happened, included propanol in the C02/H2 ratio of 5/1. X-ray diffraction examination confirmed that the catalyst has a spinel structure as a major phase in Fe0.8Ni0.2O3+8 crystalline. FTIR analysis indicated that both the Lewis acid sites which are located in wave numbers of 1490 and 1450 cm-1 and Bronsted - Lowry acid sites which are located in wave numbers of 1645 and 1622 cm-1 were involved in the catalytic conversion. Futthermore, Rietveld analysis proved that catalyst consists of NiFe2O4, NiO, Fe2O3, and Fe2O3 crystalline phases.
