Abstract

The study of the adsorption of nitric oxide on the surfaces of Group VIII transition metals is relevant to several major catalytic processes. Among these are the oxidation of ammonia to nitric oxide and subsequent synthesis of nitric acid, and the environmentally important removal of nitric oxide from exhaust stream effluents (3). The latter process involves dissociation of NO and requires the presence of a reducing agent, e.g., CO or H_2, to remove oxygen from the catalyst surface and thus prevent its being poisoned (3). Ruthenium is unique among the noble metals in its strong selectivity for formation of N_2 as a decomposition product of NO at relatively low temperatures, i.e., less than 800 K.
