• Fischer-tropsch: Product selectivity-the fingerprint of synthetic fuels 

      Shafer, Wilson D.; Gnanamani, Muthu Kumaran; Graham, Uschi M; Yang, Jia; Masuku, Cornelius M; Jacobs, Gary; Davis, Burtron H. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      The bulk of the products that were synthesized from Fischer–Tropsch synthesis (FTS) is a wide range (C1–C70+) of hydrocarbons, primarily straight-chained paraffins. Additional hydrocarbon products, which can also be a ...
    • Fischer-Tropsch synthesis: Effect of CO conversion on CH4 and oxygenate selectivities over precipitated Fe-K catalysts 

      Ma, Wenping; Shafer, Wilson D.; Jacobs, Gary; Yang, Jia; Sparks, Dennis E.; Hamdeh, Hussein H.; Davis, Burtron H. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      The explanation for CH4 selectivity for iron based Fischer-Tropsch catalysts in the low conversion region (i.e., <50%) remains elusive. In this contribution, the CO conversion effect was carefully examined over four K ...
