Title
An active Fischer–Tropsch synthesis FeMo/SiO2 catalyst prepared by a modified sol–gel technique
Abstract

FeMo/SiO2 catalysts were prepared by co-precipitation, sol–gel, or modified sol–gel (MSG) methods. These catalysts were characterized by N2 physisorption, H2 temperature-programmed reduction, X-ray diffraction, Mössbauer spectroscopy and transmission electron microscopy. Fischer–Tropsch synthesis (FTS) performances of catalysts were evaluated in a fixed-bed reactor at 300 °C, 1.5 MPa, 6 nL/(g of catalyst·h) and H2/CO molar ratio of 2.0. The MSG-derived FeMo/SiO2 catalyst possessed higher surface catalytic sites, smaller iron crystallites, weaker Fe–SiO2 interaction and easier reduction behavior relative to conventional method derived catalysts. The modified catalyst also exhibited higher activity, lower methane selectivity and better stability in FTS reaction.
