What is it about?

review paper comprehensively discusses two different processes, namely Hydrocarbon and methanol synthesis through CO2 hydrogenation. The review starts with hydrocarbon synthesis, reaction mechanism, and continues with the effect of catalyst and reactor on enhancement of product efficiency by hydrogenation of CO2. It proceeds to the second process covering reaction mechanism as well as effect of catalys ttype, operating conditions and reactor type on the process improvement.

Why is it important?

Furthermore a brief overview on the reactor types as the most effective component of the theoretical and experimental reported results on the process improvement is given. All the information is tabulated to provide better comparison. Finally, by taking the available information into account the best reactor configuration which is adjustable to reaction mechanism is proposed.


Writing this article was a great pleasure as it has co-authors with whom I have had long standing collaborations.
