Promoting Effect of Triglyme on Lean NOx Reduction Over Ag/Al2O3
The highly oxygenated hydrocarbon triethylene glycol dimethyl ether or triglyme (CH3O–(C2H4O–)3CH3) was found to efficiently reduce NOx under lean conditions over Ag/Al2O3, but gave a low NOx conversion over Cu-ZSM-5. Furthermore, triglyme showed an extraordinary promoting effect when added together with propene as reducing agent for NOx over Ag/Al2O3 at low temperature. This is most likely due to that triglyme promotes the activation of propene.
