In this work the kinetics of the (reactive) lean accumulation phase of the NOx storage-reduction process is described through a detailed kinetic model, involving both the gas-phase molecules and the adsorbed species. Kinetic data have been collected following a novel approach based on simultaneous operando spectroscopic measurements and on-line pulse reactor effluent analysis. To our knowledge, this is the first time the temporal evolutions of the concentration of both the surface and the gas species are used jointly to describe the kinetic of a transient catalytic process.
