# State the Condition and Give Balanced Equation for the Conversion of Water Gas to Hydrogen – in the Bosch Process. - Chemistry

Short Note

State the condition and give balanced equation for the conversion of water gas to hydrogen – in the Bosch process.

#### Solution

Conditions and balance equations for conversion of water gas to hydrogen

Water gas should be mixed with excess of steam, catalyst → Fe2O3 promoter → Cr2O3 at 450°C

$\ce{[Co + H2] + \underset{\text{steam}}{H2O}->[Fe2O3 450°C][Cr2O3] CO2 + 2H2 +\triangle}$

Concept: Hydrogen from Water
