  • This paper firstly reported complete oxidation HCHO into CO2 and H2O over Au/CeO2(DPU) catalyst at room temperature and even in the presence of water and at high GHSV (143,000 h-1).
  • Consumption of the formate intermediates is the rate limiting step for catalytic oxidation of HCHO over Au/CeO2 catalysts.
