Abstract

original image

The gas station: Gasoline-fraction hydrocarbons were obtained on a Co by using an Al-SBA-16 support. The introduction of Al into the SBA-16 framework not only generates weak-acid sites but also retains the structural properties of SBA-16. The acidity of the support plays a crucial role in controlling the selectivity in the Fischer–Tropsch synthesis. The selectivity for C5–C12 hydrocarbons over the 10AlCo/SBA-16 catalyst reached about 60 %.
