Soc. chem. Ind. (Japan), vol. 37, 1934, B, pp. 142-146; Chem. Abs., vol. 28, 1934, p. 5648.

        Experimental apparatus and procedure and the catalysts used are described.  Experimental results are reported for reductions under the following conditions:  (1) 197, (2) 197 and 203, and (3) 197 and 228, with 32.9% CO and 63.8% H2 in the raw gas for (1) and (2) and 32.7% CO and 64.5% H2 for (3).  The catalysts for the 3 runs had the compositions:  Co:Cu:Th=8:1:0.3 for (1), and Co:Cu:ThO=9:1:2 for (2) and (3).  Gasoline yields varied 50-65 mg. per l. of gas for (1), 51-76 mg. per l. for (2) and 36-115 mg. per l. for (3).  Material balances for 2 runs are appended.
