- The objectives of the present work can be divided into three parts. The first objective was to develop a best-fit model for the older methanol synthesis catalyst (BASF S3-85) data base. At the time that this work commenced (June 1989), the BASF S3-85 data base contained many rate measurements accumulated over a few years. The newer catalyst (BASF S3-86) data base, at that time, contained only a few observations and did not include a broad range of conditions. Thus, a second objective of this work was to expand the BASF S3-86 data base to include more rate observations over a broader range of conditions. Finally, after expansion of the BASF S3-86 data base, the third objective was to develop a rate expression to describe this data base. This would include the application of rate expressions developed for the BASF S3-85 catalyst, as well as new models. (VC)
