Bollas Department of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering, University of Connecticut, Storrs, 159 Discovery Dr., Storrs, CT 06269, USA ARTIC L E I NF O ABSTRAC T Keywords: The need for energy independence and security has refocused research on Fischer-Tropsch Synthesis (FTS) and Fischer-Tropsch synthesis its capability to selectively produce short and branched hydrocarbons. In this work, FTS selectivity to gasoline- Gasoline selective range products was explored as a catalysis and process engineering problem. Novel structured catalysts for in Structured catalyst situ upgrading of FTS products to gasoline-range hydrocarbons were successfully synthesized by coating con- ZSM-5 trolled-thickness ZSM-5 ﬁlms on the surface of Co-Al O /monolith substrates. These catalysts were synthesized 2 3 Bifunctional catalyst on the premise that the monolith serves as an eﬃcient mass and heat transfer structure, while the ZSM-5 layer functions as a hydrocarbon cracking and isomerization agent. Compared to traditional diesel-selective FTS, considerably higher quantity and quality of gasoline-range products were achieved with these bi-layered/bi- functional catalysts. Oil products with gasoline yield higher than
