The presented results show that the ceria nano-shapes have a distinct influence on the activation of water and the reaction of adsorbed carbonates and formates with water, to produce hydrogen. This study suggests a large impact of ceria particle shape on reactions involving water, such as the water-gas-shift reaction.
