Dear balu raju,

Industrial method for the preparation of Methanol(CH3OH) :

On industrial scale methanol is prepared from a mixture of carbon monoxide and hydrogen. The gaseous mixture is subjected to 200 atmospheres and then passed over heated catalyst mixture of ZnO and Cr2O3 kept at 400O C to 450C. This reaction results the formation of methanol vapours which are then condensed to liquid state.

CO + 2H2 CH3-OH


Hope this information helped you immensely...

All the Very Best & Good Luck to you ...
