     Using the same method of preparation as described previously (Eidus and Zelinskii, abs. 793), but using Co(I) and Co(II), differing in preparation as catalysts, the catalytic interaction of C2H4 with CO in the presence of H2 at 760 mm. pressure was studied.  (I) was not stable enough; (II) was more stable.  Results show that hydrocondensation reaction of CO with C2H4 in the presence of H2 takes place; 75% by volume of liquid product is formed at the expense of the initial C2H4.  The presence of a considerable amount of O2-containing compounds was detected, particularly alcohols.  PrOH was detected as the 3-nitrophthalate.
