Abstract

A method is suggested to produce iron catalyst for the synthesis of hydrocarbons from carbon monoxide and hydrogen, using silicon and alkali as an activator. Iron catalysts containing copper and manganese are mixed with a product (4-6% by weight) resulting from the reaction of silicon with an excess of potassium hydroxide. The suggested method allows the production of catalysts characterized by a higher hydrocarbon yield. For example, the catalyst of composition 100% Fe + 25% Cu + 4% Mn activated by 5% of the solution of potassium silicate in potassium hydroxide provides the yield of 130-140 cm3/cm3 gas of liquid hydrocarbons at 220-230C.
