Nitric Oxide Reduction with Hydrogen, Carbon Monoxide, and Hydrocarbons over Gold Catalysts

Open Access


The reactivity of nitric oxide with reducing gases, using supported gold catalysts is reviewed and assessed in comparison with the use of other precious metal catalysts. Applications for this technology in the purification of exhaust gases are envisaged.
