Abstract

The initial rates of formation of methanol over a copper-zinc oxide catalyst were measured in a batch reactor at 195 to 225 °C and 17 atm pressure. The measurements were made in the absence of mass and heat transport influence. The rates were found to increase with increasing CO2 CO ratio in the feed, and were suppressed by the presence of water. The differences between these observations and those in previous work were discussed.
