- To avoid methane production in F-T synthesis on Fe catalysts, efforts are being made on conversion of synthesis gas to high molecular weight hydrocarbons, such as waxes. Strong acidity of sulfated zirconium oxides, ZrO₂/SO₄, is being used to pretreat long-chain paraffins with carbon numbers greater than n-C₃₂. Progress during this period is reported on reactivity of Pt/ZrO₂/SO₄ for hydrocracking n-C₃₂ and on effects of hydride donor solvent on hydrocracking of n-C₃₂. 5 figs.
