Based on the active surface model of the iron catalyst for ammonia synthesis, the assumptions which led to obtaining the cobalt catalyst for ammonia synthesis were described. The incorporation into the system small amounts of manganese, an element which binds oxygen stronger than cobalt, has influence the development of the catalyst’s specific surface area. The activity of manganese modified catalysts is higher than that of cobalt catalyst without manganese addition. The obtained catalysts were characterized with the following methods: ICP-OES, XRD, BET <alternatives> [...] </alternatives>
