Table of Contents

Selected Contents A history of the Fischer-Tropsch synthesis in Germany 1926-1945.
Loading of cobalt on carbon nanofibers.
Study of carbon monoxide hydrogenation over supported Au catalysts.
Comparing Fischer-Tropsch synthesis on iron-and cobalt catalysts. The dynamics of structure and function.
Fischer-Tropsch Synthesis: compositional modulation study using an iron catalyst.

Methanol Synthesis in Inert or Catalytic Supercritical Fluid.
Fischer-Tropsch based GTL Technology: a new process?


The declining supply of crude oils worldwide and the ever increasing demand for petroleum products from China, India, Europe and the US have recently propelled crude prices to unprecedented levels. The future availability of traditional crudes is becoming a source of discussion and debate.

Fischer-Tropsch Synthesis, Catalysts and Catalysis offers a timely and comprehensive report on the processing of relatively inexpensive coal deposits into transportation fluids using Fisher-Tropsch process Technology. In addition to recent catalysts and process developments, the book contains the history of the Fisher-Tropsch in Germany and Japan based on captured documents by allied forces.

Key Features

  • Increase the understanding of FT process development
  • Addresses four major areas of interest in Fischer-Tropsch synthesis (FTS)


Practitioners, researchers and students in the petrochemical/petroleum field
