Catalysis engineering of bifunctional solids for the one-step synthesis of liquid fuels from syngas: a review

The combination of acidic zeolites and Fischer–Tropsch synthesis (FTS) catalysts for one-step production of liquid fuels from syngas is critically reviewed. Bifunctional systems are classified by the

Investigation of catalytic conversion of Fischer-Tropsch heavy paraffin mixture

Due to the very broad raw materials base of the synthesis gas production the Fischer-Tropsch synthesis and its eco-friendly products are becoming more important. The main goal of the experimental

Exploring iron-based multifunctional catalysts for Fischer-Tropsch synthesis: a review.

This review focuses on promising research activities addressing the conversion of syngas to liquid fuels mediated by iron-based multifunctional materials, highlights their preparation and properties, and discusses their implication and challenges in the area of carbon utilization through H(2)/CO(+CO(2)) mixtures.

Cobalt hybrid catalysts in Fischer-Tropsch synthesis

Abstract Currently, cobalt and zeolites are used in Fischer-Tropsch synthesis (FTS) to produce gasoline-range hydrocarbons (GRHs) that constitute clean and environmentally friendly fuels. This

Insights into the Catalytic Performance of Mesoporous H‐ZSM‐5‐Supported Cobalt in Fischer–Tropsch Synthesis

Mesoporous H‐ZSM‐5 (mesoH‐ZSM‐5) was used as a carrier for a series of bifunctional Co‐based catalysts for Fischer–Tropsch synthesis with ZrO2 and/or Ru added as promoters. The reducibility of the

Fischer–Tropsch (FT) Synthesis to Biofuels (BtL Process)

The Fischer–Tropsch synthesis of long-chain hydrocarbons is described here along with the process involved. Catalysis plays a fundamental role within this method, and therefore information on the

Water-Zeolite Interfaces for Controlling Reaction Routes in Fischer- Tropsch Synthesis of Alternative Fuels

The Fischer-Tropsch Synthesis (FTS) remains an important process for motor fuel production from CO and H2. The composition of the FTS products (hydrocarbon mixtures) depends on the properties of a

Hydroconversion of model Fischer‑Tropsch wax over noble metal/silica-alumina catalysts

Bifunctional catalysts based on platinum and amorphous silica-alumina were studied in the hydroconversion of n-hexadecane. The influence of platinum loading and support acidity on activity and

Hydroformylation of post-metathesis product using commercial rhodium-based catalysts

The hydroformylation of the post-metathesis product 7-tetradecene using different commercially available homogeneous rhodium-based catalysts has been investigated. The influences of different
