Development of a Catalytic Cycle in Molybdenum Carbide Catalyzed NO/CO Reaction

  • Zhiwei Yao
  • Chuan Shi


In NO/CO reaction, there is a competition between NO reduction by CO and Mo2C oxidation by oxygen generated during NO dissociation. A complete equality of NO conversion and NO reduction degree can be achieved after increasing CO concentration in the system, which makes establishing a catalytic cycle on Mo2C catalyst possible.
