In practice the methanol production process is operated at temps of 250-300c and at pressures of 50-100 atmospheres in the presence of a copper based catalyst. Are these operating conditions consistent with the aims of achieving a high equilibrium yield of methanol and a high rate of production. Note any potential conflicts in realizing both these aims. Explain the role of the copper based catalyst noting how its presence helps to address any conflicts identified and the impact it may have this may have on the overall cost of the production process. PLEASE HELP!!!
