- ... Inedible natural oils are desired resources for renewable fuel and chemical production. Herein, a nonprecious metal cobalt catalytic system was developed for selectively hydrogenating fatty acids and natural oil into fatty alcohols or long-chain alkanes. The cobalt-based catalysts were prepared by a wet-impregnation method with a series of supports including HZSM-5, CeO₂, ZrO₂, SiO₂, Al₂O₃, TiO₂, ...
