Over the last 20 years, carbon-containing catalysts prepared using carbonized aluminum oxide and various carbon-based materials as carriers, along with metal carbides as active components, have been widely studied in the hydroprocessing of oil fractions. In this work, the properties of different groups of carbon-containing catalysts are discussed. The difficulties of using carbon-based carriers caused by their need for chemical pretreatment (oxidation and leaching), and the application of water–organic infiltrating solutions to form active catalyst components in finely dispersed form, is shown.
