Water Gas Shift

CO + H2O = H2 + CO2

i'm trying to find a gas equilibrium chart for this, like the charts here: .  anyone know where we can find one?


in the interim, here's a paper with some good basic explanation of the water gas shift

water gas shift and catalyst paper.pdf 


the summary is that the foward water gas shiff (left to right) is favored at lower temps.  however, the reaction rate is slower, so catalysts are critical to make the logistics attractive.   the paper above has a good tour of the details.
