Fischer–Tropsch Synthesis: Analysis of Products by Anderson–Schulz–Flory Distribution Using Promoted Cobalt Catalyst

This work aims to evaluate formed products according to the Anderson-Schulz- Flory (ASF) distribution in Fischer-Tropsch synthesis. The crystalline phases of cerium and cobalt were confirmed in the mesoporous structure of the SBA-15 molecular sieve. The ASF distribution model showed a distribution of products with two chain growth probabilities, α1 and α2 for Co/Ce/SBA-15 catalyst. The maximum production of hydrocarbons was in the range of light olefins, followed by gasoline.
