Abstract

This chapter provides an overview on the synthesis of FT catalysts using the microemulsion techniques as well as other common preparation techniques such as impregnation, precipitation and strong electrostatic adsorption method. It will focus on the results of catalyst characterization in terms of morphology, particle size distribution, and reducibility. FT reaction is considered as a surface-sensitive reaction in which the size of the active metal particles can influence the catalytic activity and product selectivity. The physicochemical properties of the FT catalyst prepared via microemulsion techniques shall be compared with those synthesized via other routes such as impregnation, precipitation and strong electrostatic adsorption methods. The performance of the cobalt-based and iron-based catalysts prepared via various formulations in the Fischer-Tropsch synthesis reaction will be discussed.
