In Part I we have examined some aspects of the characterization and specific reactivity of iron catalysts for synthesis applications, with particular attention to the role of the iron carbide phases that are formed. In this part we continue this examination, but with more attention to reactivity and selectivity than to characterization, and with more attention to iron alloy formulations. However, the role of carbide formation is still an important overall factor in looking at results obtained.
