Syn gas, a mixture of carbon monoxide and hydrogen (plus small amounts of methane and other impurities) can be separated into pure carbon monoxide and hydrogen.

There are two main methods, low temperature/high pressure separation (distillation) or absorption of CO into a CuCl solution at 300 bar. Other methods are in use.
