This paper describes the effect of deuterium on rate of product formation and the inverse isotope effect for hydrogenation of CO reveals that hydrogen addition to CO is likely involved in a kinetically relevant step and supports the proposed mechanism for the formation of oxygenates over Pt promoted Co-CeO2 catalysts.
