     Reactions with CO and various catalysts are discussed.  Processes are developed for the formation of MeOH, and from this a mixture of alcohols is made called synthol.  By heating synthol at 400 in an autoclave, there is formed synthin, a petroleumlike liquid, about of which is saturated hydrocarbons similar to benzine or gasoline, the other being soluble in concentrated H2SO4.
