Rhodium shows catalytic activities for a variety of chemical reactions. Its flexibility, as regards reactivity in CO-hydrogenation, makes it very interesting for the examination of catalytic mechanisms [1]. Moreover, rhodium and other group VIII metals, have been found to show strong interactions between the metal and typically reducible oxidic supports such as TiO2 (SMSI, strong metal-support interactions) [2]. Similar effects have also been reported with non-reducible supports (Al2O3) [3,4].
