Abstract

We prepared highly productive Co/MCF nanocatalysts by a facile melt infiltration process using a hydrated Co precursor. The highly loaded Co particles (30 wt%) were uniformly dispersed in the large pores (30 nm) of the MCF support. The Co particles had an average diameter of 17 nm and clean surfaces without any surfactant. The Co/MCF catalyst exhibited very high hydrocarbon productivity (∼0.98 gtotal HC gcat−1 h−1) with high activity (CO conversion = 77%, CTY = 7.6 × 10−5 molCO gCo−1 s−1) and good selectivity for C5+ long chain hydrocarbons (∼81%) in Fischer–Tropsch synthesis.
