Abstract

Activity patterns for the high temperature water gas shift reaction over oxide catalysts promoted by precious metals show that the performance of iron oxide-chromia catalysts can be significantly improved by promotion with small amounts of rhodium. The results suggest that reactions of hydrogen at the promoter-catalyst interface are the rate controlling process.
