1665. KARPOV, A. Z. [Synthesis of Methanol From Carbon Dioxide and Hydrogen.] Org. Chem. Ind. (U.S.S.R.), vol. 6, 1939, pp. 574-577; Chem. Abs., vol. 34, 1940, pp. 5047, 6929.
MeOH is obtained in good yield by passing CO-H2 mixture over a Zn-Cr-Ni catalyst at 370°. The gas from COMe2-BuOH fermentation contains traces of S compounds, which inactivate the catalyst; such gases may be purified by passing over active C.
