2970.     ---------------.  [RUHRCHEMIE, A.-G.]  [Wet Method for Paraffin Synthesis With Cobalt Catalyst.]  FIAT Reel L-5, Sept. 6, 1941, frames 115-117; PB 70,159; TOM Reel 299.

        Furnace was charged with a crushed Co catalyst mixture and oil condensate plus crude paraffin, m. p. 120-320.  The temperature during the first few days of operation ranged 180-190.  The yields obtained were not satisfactory.  At 208, the yield declined and was stabilized at about 60%.  Compared with the normal dry synthesis, the wet synthesis does not offer any advantage.
