3292.     ---------------.  [STORCH, H. H.]  Review of Development of Process for Synthesis of Liquid Fuels by Hydrogenation of Carbon Monoxide.  Chem. Eng. Process, vol. 44, No. 6, 1948, pp. 469-480; Chem. Abs., vol. 42, 1948, p. 5200.

        Brief review of the early work of Fischer and his associates is followed by a more detailed discussion of process development work in Germany and the United States since about 1938.  the salient features of all processes are collected in a single table, so as to facilitate comparisons of operating temperatures, pressures, space-time yields, product distribution, and steel requirements.  Also describes related processes, such as the Synol, Oxo, and isoparaffin syntheses.  Some discussion of the mechanism of the synthesis process and of the problem of C deposition on Fe catalysts.
