Mechanistic model of disproportionation of nitrogen monoxide on CaHY-type zeolite

Infrared spectra produced by adsorbing, by evacuating and by readsorbing NO on CaHY-type zeolite were examined. The absorption peaks were identified by comparing the spectra produced by adsorbing and by evacuating N2O and NO2. Based upon the experimental evidence, an eight-step mechanism was proposed for the behavior of NO on CaHY-type zeolite. A mechanistic model of the disproportionation reaction of NO was deduced from the variation of the spectra with time.

    The nomenclature adopted in this paper is based on that used by Breck (D. W. Breck,Zeolite Molecular Sieves, John Wiley and Sons, New York (1974), p. 97). Site II is associated with the 6-membered ring of the sodalite cage, and is displaced towards the center of the super cage.Google Scholar
