Title
Water–gas shift activity of ceria supported Au–Re catalysts
Abstract

Au–Re/ceria, Au/ceria and Re/ceria catalysts were prepared using deposition precipitation and impregnation techniques for Au and Re addition, respectively, except the sample prepared by sequential impregnation. Catalysts were characterized by HRTEM-EDS, SEM-EDS, XPS and XRD. WGS activity tests on the samples were performed in the temperature range 200–450 °C. The effects of Re incorporation, metal addition sequence, space velocity and H2O/CO ratio on the catalytic performance were investigated. The novel Au–Re/ceria catalysts showed high activity in WGS reaction, especially at high H2O/CO ratios, led by the presence of catalytically active and steam tolerant sites formed on the bimetallic catalysts.
