Three-dimensionally ordered macroporous Cu-Fe  catalysts were prepared for higher alcohols synthesis from syngas with high yield and high C2+OH selectivity. Cu0 species is the active site for alcohols synthesis.χ-Fe5C2 is the active site for hydrocarbon synthesis.  Cu0 and χ-Fe5C2 have synergetic effect for higher alcohols synthesis.
