Oxygenates are valuable products of the Fischer-Tropsch synthesis and can be produced in significant quantities. It is understood that they are formed via primary and secondary reactions. In this study pathways of oxygenates formation and consumption were studied via cofeeding of various C8 oxygenates during high temperature FT synthesis.
