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.
