 1576.    ---------------.  [IPATIEFF, V. N.]  Hydrogenation Developments in Russia.  Nat. Petrol. News, vol. 23, No. 25, 1931, pp. 61-64; Chem. Abs., vol. 26, 1932, p. 1424.

       Decomposition and synthesis investigations of organic compounds were made possible with the development of high-pressure and high temperature methods.  The reduction of CO by H2 at atmospheric pressure with catalysts produces liquid and solid homologs of CH4.  The formation of metal carbides appears to be an intermediate stage of the reactions involved.  A gasoline produced similarly from water gas was shown to be highly unsaturated, and several O2 compounds were isolated.
