Fischer-Tropsch synthesis has been studied on Co catalysts. C5+ selectivity depends on the alumina phase and the pore size. The results also indicate that an optimal particle size exists for each alumina support. SSITKA studies reveal that the reactivity on Co particles is the same and only the number of surface active sites differ.
