Title: Fischer-Tropsch catalysts

Abstract

This patent describes a process for producing hydrocarbons comprising contacting synthesis gas under converting conditions of temperature and pressure with a catalyst comprising a support material chosen from the group consisting of silicon dioxide, aluminum oxide, activated carbon, magnesium oxide, titania and mixtures thereof impregnated with solvated metal atoms. The metal atoms are chosen from the group consisting of iron and cobalt with a metal content of the finished catalyst ranging from an amount sufficient to be catalytically effective up to about 5 weight percent, based on the weight of the catalyst. The solvated metal atoms are impregnated on the support material by vaporizing the metal in the presence of a solvent, forming a vaporous solvent/metal mixture, cooling the mixture to very low temperatures to form a cocondensed solvent/metal solid mixture, warming the solid mixture to form a metal in solvent slurry, and contacting the metal in solvent slurry with the support material and removing the solvent.
