REDUCTION OF CARBON MONOXIDE ON COBALT-(I) COMPLEXES
The hydrogenation of carbon monoxide has been investigated in the presence of reduced cobalt species under different conditions of pressure (atmospheric pressure in a high boiling solvent, 1.4 bar in a circulator with continuous trapping of the products, 150 bars in autoclaved) at 200-250 degrees C. These carbon monoxide reductions led to the formation of mixtures of olefinic and paraffinic hydrocarbons whose distribution depends on the reaction conditions. At low pressure, unusual selectivities in olefins were observed, the C-3 fraction being generally important. The factors governing these selectivities are briefly discussed.
