1590. IVANOV, K. N., KOZLOV, L. I., AND SOFER, M. A. [Properties of Zinc-Chromium Catalyst for the Synthesis of Methanol.] Jour. Chem. Ind. (U.S.S.R.), vol. 13, 1936, pp. 406-408; Chem. Abs. 30, 1936, p. 4630.
Presence of Pb and Cu in the catalyst lowers its productivity somewhat. More than 1% of sulfide or sulfate S lowers the productivity and increases the amount of esters in the MeOH. Above 400°, this effect is not so important. The presence of even 0.1% of Fe is very harmful, though FeO does not show this effect.
