A broad investigation was carried out into factors affecting the rate of the para-orthohydrogen shift reaction, when promoted by the ferric oxide gel catalyst. The investigation included studies of the kinetics of the reaction, the effects of diffusion within thee catalyst particle, the relation between catalyst surface area and activity, the effects of diffusion external to the catalyst particles, technique of preparation and activation of the catalyst.
