A Catalyst For The Conversion Of Gas To Hydrocarbons By The Fischer-Tropsch Synthesis
A catalyst is suggested for conversion of gas to hydrocarbons by the Fischer-Tropsch synthesis, containing cobalt in catalytically active amount and a metal of platinum group. The metals are supported on a support - γ-alumina. The catalyst is characterized by an X-ray diffraction pattern. The cobalt content is equal to 12-40 wt.%, the content of another metal equals 0.1-1.9 wt.% or 0.25-4.75%. The second metal is selected from the group consisting of platinum, iridium, rhodium or their mixtures. The catalyst X-ray diffraction patterns contain peaks at 2q of 65-70°, where q is refraction angle. The catalyst contains also a promoter in the amount of 1% of the catalyst weight, consisting of a mixture of rare-earth metal oxides.
