The deactivation of Co/Al2O3 in Fischer-Tropsch synthesis was modeled by incorporating an activity factor into kinetic models proposed in the literature. Model parameters showed that the partial pressure of water had a considerable impact on the selectivity loss of the catalyst with time-on-stream.
