Title: Research and development program for catalysis in coal conversion processes. Final report. [More than 400 references]

Abstract

The use of catalysts in coal conversion processes is reviewed, and a research and development program is recommended for catalysis in future conversion technology. Emphasis is on those processes leading to clean fuels for electric power generation. The argument of the text consists of a series of articles on the subject of catalysis, including catalysts for hydrosulfurization and liquefaction of coal, and catalysts for low-sulfur producer gas for power stations, commense the treatment and the catalytic properties of coals--specifically the beneficial modifications by additives. Also reviewed are Fischer-Tropsch catalysts to produce jet fuel and methanol for peaking power. An article on Lewis acid (ZnCl/sub 2/) catalytic liquefaction is analyzed, followed by a consideration of supporting research including the mechanism of bond breaking in coal catalysis, and center ring cracking of polynuclear aromatic structures, and lastly a review of new catalyst materials. A literature survey containing abstracts of more than 400 relevant publications is included, many of which are summarized.
