A method is suggested to produce methanol and other organic co-products by reducing carbon monoxide by hydrogen under the pressure of 200 atmospheres and at elevated temperature (480C) in the presence of a catalyst. A mixture produced by alloying chromic salts with zinc oxide is used as the catalyst. Potassium salts are added to this mixture.
