CO2 methanation was conducted at low temperatures with an electric field. Results show that 5 wt %Ru/CeO2 catalyst exhibited high and stable catalytic activity for CO2 methanation with the electric field. The kinetic investigations and in-situ DRIFTS measurements revealed that Ru/CeO2 catalyst promoted CO2 methanation and Ru at the RuCeO2 interface (low-coordinated Ru sites) contributes to the reverse water gas shift reaction at low temperatures in the electric field.
