Tabular data summarize the products obtained in a 10-week run on a 1.5 m.3 furnace at 250° and 20 atm. with a 55:45 mixture of CO:H2 and a daily yield of 0.3. In smaller experiments a high percentage of high-boiling products was obtained. The paraffin content was as high as 40%. Some of the products were worked up to yield alcohols, sulfonates, fatty acids, lubricating oils, and leather oils.
