Preparation of Fischer-Tropsch Catalysts

  • P. A. Chernavskii


Topochemical processes accompanying the preparation of supported cobalt catalysts for Fischer-Tropsch synthesis are systematized. The influence of different factors on the size distribution of Co particles during catalyst preparation is considered. Using a magnetic method, it is possible to estimate the average particle size of the supported metal and to obtain a particle size distribution function. Approaches allowing one to control the type of size distribution function for the Co particles are described using Co/SiO2 catalysts as an example.
