“…The first example of interest involves the hydrogenation of CO to long chain hydrocarbons which may more commonly be referred to as Fischer-Tropsch (FT) synthesis. For 50 years there have been reports of the beneficial effects of using a catalyst which has been exposed to sulfur,  with examples extending to 2 of the 4 active FT metals (Co and Fe). Before evaluating specific examples, it is worth highlighting the results which would traditionally be expected from exposing Catalysis Science & Technology Perspective a FT catalyst to sulfur.…”
scite is a Brooklyn-based organization that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students and researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
