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

Abstract

This patent describes a process useful for the conversion of synthesis gas feed comprised of hydrogen and carbon monoxide to hydrocarbons. The process comprises contacting the feed at reaction conditions with a catalyst which comprises cobalt, or cobalt and thoria in catalytically active amount composited with tatania or titania-containing support, to which is added sufficient rhenium to obtain, with a similar feed at corresponding process conditions, improved activity, as contrasted with a catalyst composition otherwise similar except that it does not contain rhenium.
