The catalytic behavior of a series Ru/Al_2O_3 catalysts promoted with various levels of Mn and K prepared by coimpregnation were investigated in the CO-hydrogenation reaction. Catalytic studies showed that the addition of Mn enhances the production of Fischer Tropsch products and K promotion in particular enhances the production of unsaturated hydrocarbons while inhibiting the methanation reaction. The influence of K and Mn on the Fischer Tropsch product selectivity in CO-hydrogenation studies is discussed in terms of ensemble and electronic effects, and the production of a new surface site Ru:Mn:K.
