Trainee Charlotte Stewart (3rd-year PhD student in Chemical Engineering) is co-author on a paper published in AIChE Journal.
This paper describes the effects of hexane/syngas molar ratio, H2/CO molar ratio, and gas hourly space velocity on the synthesis of higher alcohols from syngas under both gas phase and supercritical-hexane phase conditions.
