        Study of the synthesis of hydrocarbons directly from carbide at 250-450 has been carried out.  Reaction at 340 proved to be most suitable for the synthesis of liquid hydrocarbons.  The effects of temperature on the formations of the products are discussed.  These effects are intimately associated with the heat of reaction involving the carbide.
