Platinum (Pt) based catalysts are used in fuel cell applications for the high efficiency, low temperature and non-pollutant producing method of gas conversion, however the drawbacks to commercialization include the high cost, durability and reliability of the process. Ceria supported Pt catalyst is a more promising candidate in the low temperature water-gas shift reaction because such a supported catalyst not only reduces the cost and temperature, but also achieves a greater extent of reduction and promotes the catalytic functions of Pt.
