Cu nanoparticles (CuNPs) were successfully synthesized in situ on ZnO whiskers as a selective scaffold, which were supported in a microstructured paper matrix composed of inorganic fibers; as-prepared paper composites were easy to handle in practical use and demonstrated excellent catalytic performance in the methanol reforming process for effective hydrogen production.
