  1. 1. NOx Storage and Reduction Catalysts. Reduction with Hydrogen and the Influence of Water and Carbon Dioxide

    Author : Anna Maria Lindholm; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NSR catalyst; Pt Ba Al; H2O; CO2; Pt Al; NOx reduction; H2; NH3 formation; NOx storage; Lean NOx Trap; N2O formation; kinetic modeling; Pt Si;

    Abstract : Environmental concern has increased over the past several years and resulted in stringent emission legislation on NOx, CO, and hydrocarbon emissions from automobile exhausts. Moreover, the demands to improve the fuel efficiency of engines and to lower the CO2 emissions have increased, and a way to meet this is by using lean burn engines which operate with oxygen excess.

  2. 2. FTIR Studies and Kinetic Modelling of NOX Reduction and NOX Storage

    Author : Björn Westerberg; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NOX storage; kinetic modelling; diesel exhaust; alumina; NOX reduction; FTIR spectroscopy; catalysis;

    Abstract : FTIR spectroscopy and kinetic modelling have been used to study catalysts for NOX reduction and NOX storage. For Pt/Al2O3 exposed to NO, oxygen and propene IR-bands associated with nitrates, acetate, formate, carbonates and isocyanate were observed. Experiments with NO, oxygen and HNCO showed that isocyanate is an intermediate for reduction of NOX. READ MORE

  4. 4. Experimental Studies of NOx Catalysts; Storage, Reduction and Sulphur Deactivation

    Author : Annika Amberntsson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : barium oxide; NOx storage; platinum; rhodium; sulphur poisoning; NOx reduction;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis work was to investigate how different gaseous compounds, present in an automotive exhaust from lean-tuned combustion, interact with so-called NOx storage catalysts containing Al2O3 as a support, BaO as the NOx storage compound and noble metals to provide oxidation and reduction functions. The investigations included model sample preparations, flow reactor studies with various gas mixtures and spectroscopic experiments (FTIR and XPS). READ MORE

  5. 5. Kinetic Studies of NOx Storage and Reduction Catalysts - Flow Reactor Experiments and Microkinetic Modeling

    Author : Anna Maria Lindholm; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NOx reduction; flow reactor experiments; NOx storage; Pt Ba Al; NSR catalyst; microkinetic modeling; combined NSR and SCR system;

    Abstract : The NOx storage and reduction (NSR) technology is a promising technique to reduce NOx during oxygen excess e.g. in lean burn engine exhaust. A typical NSR catalyst consists of the following components: precious metals, such as platinum, palladium or rhodium, a storage component, usually barium, and a high surface area support, such as γ-alumina.
