Title: Supported Fischer-Tropsch catalyst and method of making the catalyst

Abstract

This patent describes a method for making a catalyst comprising the following steps: (a) treating a silica catalyst base material with a nonaqueous solution of a decomposable salt or organic compound of a group IVB metal and removing remaining the nonaqueous solution; (b) impregnating the product of Step (a) with a nonaqueous solution of a decomposable salt or organic compound of a Fischer-Tropsch metal catalyst from the group consisting of cobalt, iron or ruthenium, and removing remaining the nonaqueous solution; and (c) exposing the product of Step (b) to a reducing atmosphere; all while maintaining the material and the products under conditions sufficient to avoid hydrolysis, oxidation, and calcination.
