Paper published in Industrial & Engineering and Chemistry Research


Trainees Charlotte Stewart and David Roe (both 3rd-year PhD students in Chemical Engineering) are second and third authors respectively on a paper published in the ACS journal in Industrial & Engineering and Chemistry Research. The paper describes a series of studies that were undertaken to determine the effects of catalyst promotion and process conditions on the performance of iron-based supercritical phase Fischer-Tropsch Synthesis generally, and specifically on the formation of heavy aldehydes in the reaction.
