- ... The factor dominating olefin to paraffin ratio in cobalt-catalyzed Fischer-Tropsch synthesis has been identified via experimental kinetic studies and theoretical calculations including the van der Waals interaction between the adsorbates and Co surfaces. The olefin to paraffin ratio for each carbon number is expressed as a function of adsorption energies of olefin and activation energies of hydrog ...
