Abstract

Electrosynthesis methods using molten salts are suggested for obtaining a new catalytic system based on the Mo2C/Mo composition for the water gas shift reaction. The coatings obtained by the discharge of the carbonate ion on a molybdenum substrate and by the simultaneous reduction of the electroactive species MoO4 and CO3 are catalytically more active than bulk Mo2C or the commercial catalyst Cu–ZnO–Al2O3 by one and three orders of magnitude, respectively.
