This paper reports the preparation characterization, and performance of cobalt carbonyl cluster based catalysts for use in slurry-phase Fischer--Tropsch (FT) technology investigated. Using metal carbonyls as active metal precursors allows for the control of metal particle size on the support surface, thus offering the potential for better control of activity and selectivity of the FT reaction. Silica as the support provided the highest catalyst activities. A Co{sub 2}(CO){sub 8}/Zr(OPr){sub 4… Expand
