M + C10H8˙– adducts (M = Li, Na, K) are effective reagents for eliminating acidity from the surfaces of siO2, ZrO2 or zeolie y; the treated surfaces [SiO2+ Li +, Na +,Na + from M + C10H8˙–, SiO2+ Na + from NaNo3 or zrO2+ Na+ from Na+C10H8˙–] function as novel supports for heterogeneous Rh [from Rh4(CO)12] catalysts in the conversion of CO + H2 into MeOH with > 90% selectivity at 40–95 bar adn 250–300 °C, which contrasts with the formation of CH4over rh on the untreated oxides.
