The article presents the results of studies of cobalt catalysts for the synthesis of hydrocarbons on a silicate support with promoting additives of aluminum, manganese and chromium. The influence of additives on the structural (specific surface area, dispersion of metallic cobalt, size of metal crystallites) and chemical (cobalt reduction degree) properties of catalysts was established.

The parameters of the porous structure and the active surface of cobalt catalysts for Fischer-Tropsch synthesis (SFT) prepared by the impregnation method have been studied. Characteristics of composition and porous structure were studied using elemental analysis and the Brunauer-Emmett-Taylor method (BET). The effect of the addition of oxide promoters on the specific surface area, pore volume and pore size of the Co / SiO2 catalyst has been studied.
