        Best catalyst is prepared by mixing ZnO and Cr2O3 and stirring with CrO3 solution to produce 8ZnO·Cr2-O3·CrO3·χH2O.  This is heated in a stream of H2O and forms 8ZnO·1.5 Cr2O3.  At 390°-400°, 250 atm., and a gas speed of 10,000 l. per hr., this yields 1,150-1,200 gm. of MeOH per l. of catalyst per hr.  Pure CO2 and H2 in the ratio 1:2 should be used, and no inert gas or S compound should be present, though H2S can be reversibly desorbed from the catalyst.
