Catalytic conversion of biomass-derived syngas (bio-syngas) into gasoline range hydrocarbons has been regarded as one of potential routes to utilize biomass. In this route, biomass is firstly converted into bio-syngas through biomass gasification. Then bio-syngas is catalytically converted into transportation fuels or chemicals. In this paper, catalytic synthesis of gasoline range hydrocarbons by using model syngas similar to bio-syngas has been carried out over Mo/HZSM-5 catalysts. Different system temperatures were adopted in the experiments to figure out the effects of reaction parameters. The products were analyzed by GC and GC-MS. The catalysts were characterized by SEM-EDS and TEM. The results showed that Mo/HZSM-5 was active in model bio-syngas.
