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 N 2 . In(NO, O 2 , He) system, the conversion of NO was nearly 80%, and the selectivity of N 2 was 80%. When adding 5%H 2 O to(NO, O 2 , He) system, the productivity of N 2 was not changed basically. However, as the microwave power was increased, the conversion of NO increased, and the selectivity of N 2 increased even more. The effects of NO and O 2 concentrations, and flow-rate on NO removal were also observed in the microwave discharge.
