Title: Methanol synthesis using a catalyst combination of alkali or alkaline earth salts and reduced copper chromite for methanol synthesis

Abstract

A catalyst combination is described comprising copper chromite and a basic alkali metal compound selected from the group consisting of oxide, hydroxide, formate, carbonate, bicarbonate, chromate, and acetate for use in a process for the slurry synthesis of methanol from a gaseous mixture including carbon monoxide and hydrogen in the presence of a carrier alcohol, said basic alkali metal compound being substantially solubilized in said carrier alcohol during methanol synthesis. A catalyst combination is described comprising copper chromite and a basic alkaline earth compound selected from the group consisting of oxide, hydroxide, formate, carbonate, bicarbonate, chromate, and acetate for use in a process for the slurry synthesis of methanol from a gaseous mixture including carbon monoxide and hydrogen in the presence of a carrier alcohol, said basic alkaline earth metal compound being substantially solubilized in said carrier alcohol during methanol synthesis.
