Declining domestic crude oil reserves have prompted a renewed interest in the chemistry of CO/H/sub 2/ gas mixtures (''synthesis gas''), which are readily available from coal and can be transformed by metal catalysts into a variety of organic molecules normally derived from petroleum. In particular, work in numerous laboratories is being directed at the development of milder and/or selective CO reduction catalysts and the delineation of CO reduction mechanisms. The authors have attempted to… CONTINUE READING
