In this work, effects of reduction temperature were characterized to confirm the state of cobalt species on γ-Al2O3 supports after real reduction step by TPR and XRD. And this paper was focused to give the more understandable data of the cobalt
Cobalt catalysts have higher activities in hydrogenation reactions between those of nickel and copper (Ertl et al. 2008). It is used for Fischer-Tropsch Synthesis (FTS) which convert natural gas to diesel and gasoline via synthesis gas (GTL) (Jung et al. 2012) and GTL is one of valuable technologies to resolve a shortage of petroleum.
