Chlorine-free iron-ruthenium catalyst for the water-gas shift reaction

  • Anna Basińska
  • Florian Domka


We present results of studies on the activity of chlorine-free iron-ruthenium catalysts in the water-gas shift reaction. The catalysts were prepared by impregnation of calcination products of α-, β-, γ-, δ-iron oxide-hydroxides with Ru3(CO)12. For two iron oxides (from α- and δ-FeOOH) the reaction rate constants are considerably higher than those of reactions with other catalysts based on RuCl3. Among the catalysts used, those obtained by impregnation of δ-FeOOH calcination product with Ru3(CO)12 appeared to be the most active.
