Potassium is the answer: Adding potassium to the MoS2 catalyst is necessary to achieve a high activity and selectivity from CH3SH from H2S-containing syngas. Acting as adsorption centers, the surface potassium cations promote the disproportionation of carbonyl sulfide to CO2 and CS2, but hinder the O[BOND]C and C[BOND]S bond cleavage, which is the preferred reaction on the sulfur vacancies of MoS2.
