Rhodium was added as a promoter to an iron based catalyst with the view to enhance the formation of oxygenates. The base catalyst 100 Fe / 8.7 Cu 506 K2O / 372 Al2O3 was prepared by impregnation. Three catalysts with varying mass ratios of rhodium to iron (1.3 Rh/100 Fe; 2.4 Rh/100 Fe; 3.9 Rh/100 Fe) were prepared by incipient wetness impregnation fo the base catalyst using rhodium chloride solution.
