Abstract: Both Co/SiO2 and Co/ZrO2/SiO2 catalysts for FT synthesis were characterized by temperature programmed desorption (TPD) and FTIR spectra.H2TPD evidenced that there were two H2 desorption peaks over Co/SiO2 catalyst and that the amount of H2 adsorption decreased upon introduction of ZrO2.COTPD and COIR showed that addition of ZrO2 weakened the intensity of CO adsorption but increased the amount of adsorbed CO.In FT synthesis,ZrO2 promoter enhanced the formation of heavy hydrocarbons in addition to keeping high activity.Such a shift of product array to heavier hydrocarbon was related to the increase of surface H2/CO ratio.

Key words: F-T synthesis, Co-based catalysts, ZrO2 promoter, Surface adsorption, FT-IR spectra
