3644.     ---------------.  [WELLER, S.]  Effect of Operating Variables Upon the Fischer-Tropsch Synthesis.  Bureau of Mines Rept. of Investigations 4405, 1949, 8 pp.

        Paper consists of 2 parts:  First is a discussion, based chiefly on previously published information, of the probable effect of space velocity, temperature, pressure, and gas composition on the course of synthesis and the type and properties of the products.  Some remarks are made also on the role that Co carbide, particularly bulk carbide, plays in the synthesis.
