K-promoted Mo carbide catalyst could replace expensive Pt in Fischer–Tropsch synthesis

A potassium-promoted Mo carbide catalyst system for hydrocarbon synthesisThis HOT paper reports the promotional effect of potassium addition to an alumina-supported molybdenum carbide catalyst in Fischer–Tropsch synthesis of higher hydrocarbons like olefins and paraffins.  Such a catalyst could replace expensive expensive platinum catalysts for liquid fuel production.
