The Decomposition of NO in Microwave Discharge


Journal Article

The decomposition of NO in a continuous microwave discharge was investigated. When (NO, He) mixture was used as the reactant, almost all NO can be converted to N2. In(NO, O2, He) system, the conversion of NO was nearly 80%, and the selectivity of N2 was 80%. When adding 5%H2O to(NO, O2, He) system, the productivity of N2 was not changed basically. However, as the microwave power was increased, the conversion of NO increased, and the selectivity of N2 increased even more. The effects of NO and O2 concentrations, and flow-rate on NO removal were also observed in the microwave discharge.
