Summary:In this work, cobalt catalysts based on ordered mesoporous materials of the MCM-41 type were synthesized and characterized. The synthesis of the catalysts was performed by using different methods: impregnation; incorporation of the metal in the synthesis gel and ionic exchange of the metal by the template. Different characterization techniques were used (N<Subscript>2</Subscript> adsorption–desorption, XRD, TPR, SEM and XPS) to study the textural and structural properties of the samples and the metal-support interaction corresponding to each method of synthesis. These samples were tested in the CO Hydrogenation (Fischer–Tropsch Synthesis) by measuring the CO conversion and the selectivity to CO<Subscript>2</Subscript> and some groups of hydrocarbons chains. The results show that structural and textural properties as well as the metal-support interactions are affected by the synthesis method. According to this study, catalytic performance is related to the properties of the samples, observing that the metal support interaction highly affects the activity and selectivity of the catalysts.
