Carbon oxide was reduced to carbon monoxide at a temperature as low as 300 °C with a mixture of coal and alkali metal carbonate which was preheated at high temperature around 600-800 °C. Reaction rate of carbon monoxide formation in this reaction at 800 °C increased by prolonged heating. These phenomena were more evident in the reaction of Cs<SUB>2</SUB>CO<SUB>3</SUB> than in that of K<SUB>2</SUB>CO<SUB>3</SUB>, no such phenomena being observed in the reactions of BaCO<SUB>3</SUB> and CaCO<SUB>3</SUB>.
