We report on the selective production of C8-C14 straight chain alcohols/alkenes from synthesis gas.  A Co1Cu1Mn1 catalyst prepared via oxalate co-precipitation is found to produce 1-alcohols/1-alkenes with about 65 % selectivity at a CO conversion of 18% and an optimized chain lengthening probability of 0.68.
