Ni–W sulfide catalysts for the hydroprocessing of aromatic hydrocarbons were synthesized by the in situ decomposition of tetrabutylammonium nickel thiotungstate complex supported on ordered mesoporous phenol–formaldehyde polymer. Catalysts obtained with and without additional sulfidation with dimethyl disulfide were characterized by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and transmission electron microscopy. The catalytic activity has been studied using naphthalene, 1-methylnaphthalene, 2-methylnaphthalene, and anthracene as examples. It is shown that the system used in this study proved to be active in hydrogenation and hydrocracking of polyaromatic hydrocarbons.
