Fischer-Tropsch process - Definition, glossary, details

The Fischer-Tropsch process is a set of chemical reactions that convert a mixture of carbon monoxide and hydrogen into liquid hydrocarbons. It is a key component of gas-to-liquids technology. The F-T process has gained attention due to its ability to produce low sulphur diesel fuel. This reaction operating at high pressure would result in higher conversion rates and also favours formation of long-chained alkanes both of which are desirable.
