Here, the first Tapered Element Oscillating Microbablnce (TEOM) study of carbon deposition during FT is presented for an α-Al2O3 supported Fe catalyst. It is demonstrated that the TEOM is a powerful tool to investigate carbon deposition along with activity and selectivity under FTS conditions that are industrially relevant.
