A catalyst is suggested for the synthesis of hydrocarbons from carbon monoxide and hydrogen, showing a high selectivity towards high-melting ceresines. The yield of liquid hydrocarbons attains 167.8 g/nm3. Synthetic amorphous aluminosilicate or a mixture of aluminosilicate and 7-20 % zeolite is used as the support. The catalyst composition is as follows (wt.%):

Cobalt 28.0 - 31.4
Magnesium oxide 1.1 - 3.0
Support the rest

A 3.1-4.1 wt.% zirconium dioxide additive helps to improve the catalyst stability. The ceresines content in the reaction product equals 46%, the content of isomers 15-18%. The description of the catalyst preparation procedure is presented.
