Fischer–Tropsch synthesis (FTS) was carried out using Al2O3-supported Co catalyst coated on metallic monolith. Considering the liberation of a large amount of heat from the highly exothermic FTS reaction, catalytic activity of Co catalyst coated on metallic monolith was tested and compared with that of pellet-type catalysts. The reaction was carried out in a conventional tubular fixed-bed reactor and simulated distillation (SIMDIS) analysis method was used to determine the liquid products distribution. Proper control of degree of reaction, as well as the reaction temperature gave rise to a shift of products selectivity toward higher hydrocarbons, especially C13–C18 diesel range hydrocarbons.
