This paper demonstrates the key role of the property-structure relationship of the support on iron/ceria catalysts on the hydrocarbon selectivity and olefin-to-paraffin ratio for the direct hydrogenation of carbon dioxide into hydrocarbons. The effect is directly related to the reducibility of the different nanostructured ceria supports and their interaction with the iron particles. Herein, we demonstrate that the iron-based catalysts can be modified not only by the addition of promoters, commonly reported in the literature, but also by careful control of the morphology of the ceria support.
