Same catalyst as in Figure 1. The excited state of the starting material will then undergo reactions it ordinarily could not if directly illuminated. Although the presence of ceria introduces additional OSC, it also facilitate hydrogen formation via the water gas shift reaction — so there should be an optimum level of cerium. Delft University described a Pt-catalysed ceramic foam filter in which the trapped PM is partially removed by reaction with NO2. When catalytic converters were first introduced, most vehicles used carburetors that provided a relatively rich air-fuel ratio. As a result, it is common to incorporate alkali metal oxides, alkaline earth metal oxides or rare earth oxides as surface area stabilisers 5 Figure 2.

Specialized supports include silicon dioxidetitanium dioxidecalcium carbonateand barium sulfate. Any condition that causes abnormally high levels of unburned hydrocarbons—raw or partially burnt fuel—to reach the converter will tend to significantly elevate its temperature, bringing the risk of a meltdown of the substrate and resultant catalytic deactivation and severe exhaust restriction. Closed-loop engine control systems are necessary for effective operation of three-way catalytic converters because of the continuous balancing required for effective NO x reduction and HC oxidation. Federal regulations only reduce vapour pressure and benzene directly, however aromatics are also reduced to meet emissions criteria [16]. As a result of these observations, Johnson Matthey concentrated upon improving the resistance of their automotive catalysts against thermal degradation. For example, despite the destruction they cause, hurricanes have a very orderly vortex motion when compared to the random motion of the air molecules in a closed room.

The amount of performance loss found was similar. In addition, use of the thermally stabilised washcoat and base metal promoter in combination with the optimum platinum and rhodium content in the catalyst results in further improvement in performance catalyst C. This loop forces the engine to operate both slightly lean and slightly rich on successive loops, as it attempts to maintain a mostly stoichiometric ratio on average. The smaller the catalyst particle size, the larger the surface area for a given mass of particles. Work at Ford Motor Company 7 and Johnson Matthey 8 has shown that by supporting rhodium on zirconia the activity of the catalyst can be maintained after high temperature oxidative treatment, Figure 8.

MTBE works by retarding the progress of the low temperature or cool-flame reactions, consuming radical species, particularly OH radicals and producing isobutene. Specialized supports include silicon dioxidetitanium dioxidecalcium carbonateand barium sulfate.

The way the filter is catalysed has a major impact on its PM loading characteristics. Ford also examined NOx release from NOx-traps during regeneration. In fact, the catalytic conversion of HC must take place within a few seconds of engine start-up, therefore mounting the three-way catalyst TWC close to the exhaust manifold is essential.

The regeneration process itself increases temperature which destabilises the nitrate; the consumption of reductant by other oxidised species exacerbates this and increases temperature. Finding out the nature of the active site requires technically challenging research.

Oxygen in the fuel can not contribute energy, consequently the fuel has less energy content. In this way the particularly strong triple bond in nitrogen is broken, which would be extremely uncommon in the gas phase due to its high activation energy.

Several kinds of filter can trap PM, but then the problem lies in removing the trapped PM — by oxidation to harmless CO2 and water — to prevent excess pressure drop building-up across the filter. This is called the "aromatic substitution effect". Oxygenates are just preused hydrocarbons For C3H6, the hydrocarbon conversion is quite high on both sides of stoichiometry.

For example, clock reactions have intermediates whose concentrations oscillate in time, corresponding to temporal order. Diesel Emissions Control Progress made in reducing diesel emissions last year was reviewed by Corning in what has become a traditional presentation by Tim Johnson.

During driving, the on-board diagnostic OBD system measures oxygen storage capacity OSC of a catalyst with two oxygen sensors, one upstream of it and one downstream.

Vehicles equipped with OBD-II diagnostic systems are designed to alert the driver to a misfire condition by means of illuminating the "check engine" light on the dashboard, or flashing it if the current misfire conditions are severe enough to potentially damage the catalytic converter.

Autocatalysis

Catalysed Hydrocarbon Trap The use of a zeolite-based catalysed hydrocarbon trap CHTTM to control initially-formed HCs by retaining them until catalyst light-off is reached was discussed last year 4and continued this year. The maximum CH4 conversion point corresponds to the point where CO is completely oxidized i.

From an industrial perspective, CO is known to be a catalyst poison, and thus its removal by oxidizing it to carbon dioxide (CO 2) is imperative in the elds of fuel cells and automotive exhaust.

Oxidation of both Pt and Pd is induced by O 2 and/or NO 2 in a typical lean atmosphere of a diesel exhaust gas, containing excess of oxygen.
