This paper describes experiments to determine the kinetics of methanol production at well-controlled gas compositions, using a batch reactor and performing initial rate measurements. Data indicate that the initial rates of methanol production increase with increasing CO//2/CO ratio, and the addition of water greatly suppresses the rate. Parallel to the methanol production, the rate of water production also increases with increasing CO//2/CO ratio.
