water-gas shift reaction

The water-gas shift reaction (WGS) is a chemical reaction in which carbon monoxide reacts with water vapor to form carbon dioxide and hydrogen:
CO(g) + H2O(v) → CO2(g) + H2(g)

Is it possible that the reaction can be carried out without the presence of catalyst?

Also at what temperature the reaction can be carried out without catalyst?

PS : I am concerned only with the conversion of CO into CO2 and not the formation of H2.
Temperature of about 100 deg Celcius.

WGS reaction take place at 350 deg centi if catalyst like iron oxide and a promoter with chromium oxide are used , how it is possible it can take place at 100 deg C with out catalyst
