Molybdenum carbide catalysts promoted with K, Na, Co, and Ce have been synthesized by temperature-programmed carburization using a mixture of H 2/C3H8 and evaluated for the Fischer-Tropsch synthesis. Both α- and β-Mo carbide catalysts were produced during carburization via the formation of oxy-carbide intermediate phase. The two-stage Mo carbide synthesis appeared to be characterized by a compensation effect and isokinetic relationship for both promoted and undoped catalysts suggesting that the… CONTINUE READING
