dc.description.abstract This study focused on the Fischer-Tropsch activity and selectivity of transition metal (iron, molybdenum and tungsten) carbides. The carbide catalysts were prepared by a temperature programmed method. The properties of the materials were characterised by X-ray diffraction (XRD), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), BET measurements and temperature programmed desorption of carbon monoxide (CO-TPD). The performance of the materials was tested in a Berty reactor. A reduced, precipitated iron oxide catalyst was used as a reference catalyst. en_ZA
