Title: Tantalum-containing catalyst useful for producing alcohols from synthesis gas

Abstract

A catalyst is described which is useful for selectively converting a mixture of carbon monoxide and hydrogen to a mixture of lower alkanols. The catalyst consists essentially of a mixture of molybdenum sulfide, an alkali metal compound and a tantalum compound.
