Sina Sartipi, Margje Alberts, Dr. Vera P. Santos, Maxim Nasalevich, Dr. Jorge Gascon and Prof. Freek Kapteijn Insights into the Catalytic Performance of Mesoporous H-ZSM-5-Supported Cobalt in Fischer–Tropsch Synthesis ChemCatChem 6
Fisching for gasoline: The catalytic properties of mesoporous H-ZSM-5-supported Co catalysts for the direct synthesis of gasoline from syngas are studied. The improved selectivity toward gasoline fraction owes to the secondary acid-catalyzed reactions of the Fischer–Tropsch α-olefins over the zeolite. The addition of promoters improves the reducibility of Co, which leads to an increased initial catalytic activity. Nevertheless, promoters do not affect the product distribution significantly.
