We present here some results on Ir-Mo-Rh metallic catalysts for the synthesis of C2-C4 alcohols from syngas. It was found that Ir-Mo-Rh supported on silica containing small amounts of Rh exhibited much higher activity for CO hydrogenation than Ir-Mo bimetallic catalyst. The selectivity to various alcohols did not change very much upon the addition of Rh. The activity was greatly affected by the impregnation procedure of the metals in the catalyst preparation.
