Structural and compositional changes in Fe2O3 and Cr2O3 / Fe2O3 catalysts associated with water gas shift (WGS) reaction are reported. XAFS, XRD, Raman spectroscopy and product analysis was performed in one experiment. This study demonstrated structural disorder and heterogeneity, the stabilizing role of Cr and deactivation mechanism.
