The objective of this project is to study the effect of product selectivity on the reaction of syngas and prepared Cu/ZnO/Al2O3 catalyst at low-lemperalure for methanol synthesis via blended solvents in 3 phase slurry reactor. The operating condition for this pnxrss will be as low as 150 and 30 to 50 bar of' pressure. In order to have the catalytic surface reaction to occur, Cu/ZnO/Al2O3 catalyst need to he prepared first followed by chemical reaction to produce methanol via blended solvent in 3 phase slurry reactor. Two types of blended solvents have been chosen fix this project. The first blended solvent consists of 50% of* each hutanol and nhcxanc, while the second blended solvent consists of 25% of euch hutanol, nhexane, toluene and iso-p ntane. It can be concluded that methanol was successfully synthesised using Cu/ZnO/Al2O3 prepared catalyst without involving the deactivation process of catalyst.
