Title: Insight into reaction pathways in CO hydrogenation reactions over K/MoS 2 supported catalysts via alcohol/olefin co-feed experiments

Abstract

Reaction pathways for higher alcohol synthesis from syngas are studied over K/MoS 2domains supported on mesoporous carbon (C) and mixed MgAl oxide (MMO)viaaddition of methanol, ethanol, and ethylene co-feeds.
