     Hydrocondensation of CO-3 C2H4-2 H2 at 190 yields the oil layer, which was separated into components conventionally.  These comprised 2-3% O2 derivatives (10% in the aqueous layer of catalyzate).  The aldehyde content was 0.9% in the oil and 1.9% in the aqueous layer.  Of these only EtCHO was identified.  Ketones are absent.  The aqueous layer contained 1.5% organic acids, of which 70% was EtCOOH.  The hydrocarbons formed in the reaction represent a very wide boiling range and are a complex mixture of paraffins and olefins containing C6, C8, C5, and C2 members; the latter probably form by intermediacy of CH2 radicals, which are believed to be the principal hydrocarbon-forming agency.  The nonparticipation of CO in this reaction is confirmed by lack of condensation of CO with C2H4 in the absence of H2.  Small amounts of PrOH were isolated from the summary reaction product (identified as the 3-nitrophthalate.)
