        Formation of C on a reduced Fe catalyst proceeds only to a definite point, beyond which the activity of the catalyst virtually ceases.  The limit was established by a reduction in concentration of the Fe to about 1%.  The breakdown in the catalyst activity at a definite reduction of the Fe was believed to be due to the formation of a solid solution of a higher carbide and C, from which the catalytically active Fe3C could not be regenerated.
