High energy density and low toxicity of formic acid makes it a promising hydrogen energy carrier. Here we report a Pd/CNT-based formic acid dehydrogenation catalyst that shows a significant decrease in the apparent activation energy compared to benchmark Pd catalysts and provide a mechanistic insight into its catalytic performance.
