Heterogeneous Catalytic Decomposition of Nitrous-Oxide
An overview is given on the ongoing activities in the area of the decomposition of nitrous oxide, N2O, over solid catalysts. These catalysts include metals, pure and mixed oxides, supported as well as unsupported, and zeolitic systems. The review covers aspects of the reaction mechanism and kinetics, focusing on the role of surface oxygen, the inhibition by molecular oxygen, water and other species, poisoning phenomena and practical developments.
