Title: Ruthenium catalysts, and use thereof for Fischer-Tropsch synthesis

Abstract

This patent describes a process useful for the synthesis of hydrocarbons at reaction conditions from a feed constituting an admixture of carbon monocide and hydrogen. The procedure calls for contacting the feed with a catalyst which contains ruthenium in catalytically active amount composited with titania, or titania-containing support, which has a rutile:anatase ratio of at least about 2:3 and rhenium in amount sufficient to provide a weight ratio of rhenium:ruthenium which ranges from about 2:1 to about 1:4, sufficient at corresponding reaction conditions to obain improved activity maintenance vis-a-vis a ruthenium catalyst otherwise similar except that it does not contain rhenium.
