Drawing of a ceria-supported metal rhodium-palladium nanoparticle. The ethanol and water molecules are absorbed at the interface between the nanoparticles and the support and they generate new reactive chemical species that make the rhodium and palladium atoms reorganise on the surface, change their oxidation state and thus facilitate the production of hydrogen.
