The objective of the present study is to investigate the CO and CO2 hydrogenation activity and selectivity of platinum promoted cobalt catalysts supported on ceria at moderate temperature and pressure. Different cobalt loadings were used to achieve different cobalt particle sizes, and thus, different degrees of interaction with the support.
