Both bituminous coke and wood charcoal accelerate the reaction CO2+H2→CO+H2O. Equilibrium was not reached during passage of a 3:7 mixture over the coke even at 970°; above this temperature interaction of the coke with the gases began, but even at 1,100° there were still appreciable quantities of steam in the efflux gases; below 820° with 34:66 mixtures with coke or charcoal, respectively, solid C does not enter into the reaction. Equilibrium in the gaseous reaction was reached over the charcoal at 750°; above 820° the gases reacted with it, and at about 1,000° only CO and H2 were produced.
