 1586.    IVANOV, K. I., AND GUSEV, V. I.  [Properties of Zinc-Chromium Catalysts for the Synthesis of Methanol.]  Jour. Chem. Ind. (U.S.S.R.), vol. 12, 1935, pp. 1143-1146.  Chem. Abs., vol. 30, 1936, p. 1525.

       When a catalyst of 8ZnO . 1.5Cr2O3 is first used, it is most efficient at 370, but as its use is continued, the optimum temperature rises slowly to 400.  Very high rates of passing the gas over it favor MeOH formation, while low rates of passing the gas, or temperatures above 400, begin to favor CH4 formation.
