Low-temperature CO removal Carbon monoxide deactivates fuel cell catalysts, so it must be removed from H2 generated from hydrocarbons on site. Yao et al. developed a catalyst composed of layered gold clusters on molybdenum carbide (MoC) nanoparticles to convert CO through its reaction with water into H2 and CO2 at temperatures as low as 150°C. Water was activated on MoC to form surface hydroxyl groups, which then reacted with CO adsorbed on the gold clusters. Science, this issue p. 389… 
A stable low-temperature H2-production catalyst by crowding Pt on α-MoC
TLDR
A stable, low-temperature water–gas shift catalyst is achieved by crowding platinum atoms and clusters on α-molybdenum carbide; the crowding protects the support from oxidation that would cause catalyst deactivation.
Direct methane activation by atomically thin platinum nanolayers on two-dimensional metal carbides
Efficient and direct conversion of methane to value-added products has been a long-term challenge in shale gas applications. Here, we show that atomically thin nanolayers of Pt with a single or
Molybdenum carbide catalyst for the reduction of CO2 to CO: surface science aspects by NAPPES and catalysis studies.
TLDR
A good correlation is observed between catalytic activity from atmospheric pressure reactors and the electronic structure details derived from NAPXPS results, which establishes the structure-activity correlation.
The intrinsically active surface in a Pt/γ-Mo2N catalyst for the water-gas shift reaction: Molybdenum nitride or molybdenum oxide?
TLDR
The intrinsically active surface in the Pt/γ-Mo2N catalyst for the WGS reaction was molybdenum oxide as MoOx (2<x<3), which induced unexpectedly superior catalytic performance.
Activation of Gold on Metal Carbides: Novel Catalysts for C1 Chemistry
TLDR
Variations in the behavior of the Au/δ-MoC and Au/β-Mo2C systems clearly show the strong effect of the metal/carbon ratio on the performance of the carbide catalysts.
The catalytic mechanism of the Au@TiO2−x/ZnO catalyst towards a low-temperature water-gas shift reaction
The mechanism of a low-temperature water-gas shift reaction (LT-WGSR) over supported gold catalysts has long been disputed, with the two prevailing ones being redox and associative mechanisms, due to
Water Gas Shift Reaction Catalyzed by Rhodium-Manganese Oxide Cluster Anions.
TLDR
It is identified that the WGS reaction can be, in principle, catalyzed by rhodium-manganese oxide clusters Rh2MnO1,2- in the gas phase at room temperature, the first example of the construction of such a potential catalysis in cluster science.

Catalytically active Au-O(OH)x- species stabilized by alkali ions on zeolites and mesoporous oxides
TLDR
The addition of alkali ions (sodium or potassium) to gold on KLTL-zeolite and mesoporous MCM-41 silica stabilizes mononuclear gold in Au-O(OH)x-(Na or K) ensembles and paves the way for using earth-abundant supports to disperse and stabilize precious metal atoms with alkali additives for the WGS and potentially other fuel-processing reactions.
Atomically dispersed Au-(OH)x species bound on titania catalyze the low-temperature water-gas shift reaction.
TLDR
A new method for stabilizing appreciable loadings of isolated gold atoms on titania is reported and these catalyze the low-temperature water-gas shift reaction and may catalyze a number of other reactions that require oxidized active metal sites.

TLDR
In situ atmospheric-pressure X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy experiments demonstrated that oxidized platinum Pt-OHx contributions in the Pt 4f signal are higher in the presence of sodium, providing evidence for a previously reported active-site structure of the form Pt-Nax-Oy-(OH)z.

Activity of CeOx and TiOx Nanoparticles Grown on Au(111) in the Water-Gas Shift Reaction
The high performance of Au-CeO2 and Au-TiO2 catalysts in the water-gas shift (WGS) reaction (H2O + CO→H2 + CO2) relies heavily on the direct participation of the oxide in the catalytic process.
High activity carbide supported catalysts for water gas shift.
TLDR
Experimental and computational results suggested that active sites on the Pt/Mo(2)C catalysts were located on the perimeter of the Pt particles and that strong interactions between Pt and the Mo( 2)C surface gave rise to raft-like particles.
