dc.description.abstractSeveral self-supported and metal oxide supported cobalt Fisher-Tropsch (FT) catalysts were prepared applying incipient wetness impregnation method. The catalysts were characterized by TPR, adsorption-desorption, XRD, TEM and SEM. The gas products were characterized by GC. The effect of support was investigated. The selfsupported 3D ordered macro-porous (3DOM) Fe-Co and self-supported 2D ordered mesoporous catalyst showed low or no activity under typical F-T reaction conditions. The 3DOM Al2O3 supported cobalt catalyst showed much higher CO conversion and C4+ selectivity than conventional Co/Gamma-Al2O3 catalyst. However, the 3DOM Co/Al2O3 prepared by incorporated method showed no activity. The supported Co/SBA-15 performed better CO conversion than the conventional Co/SiO2. The effects of temperature and time on 3DOM Co/Al2O3 and Co/SBA-15 system were coherent with traditional catalysts. The well-defined structure of 3DOM Al2O3 and SBA-15 may favor to the selectivity of C4+ hydrocarbons product.
