The nanoscale distribution of Co/SiO2 Fischer-Tropsch catalysts was controlled by varying the drying step during catalyst synthesis. 8 nm cobalt oxide crystallites were synthesized either homogeneously or in aggregates of up to 100 nm, and were shown to have a large impact in the activity for the Fischer-Tropsch Synthesis.
