Catalytic decomposition of N2O on La2CuO4 in the presence of LaNi5 alloy

  • J. Christopher
  • C. S. Swamy


Decomposition of N2O has been studied on pure La2CuO4, La2CuO4 with 5 and 10 wt. % LaNi5 and oxidized LaNi5 in the temperature range of 240–490 °C at 50 and 200 Torr initial pressures of N2O. The addition of LaNi5 decreases the energy of activation compared to that of La2CuO4 which has been explained based on the dispersity of NiO over La2CuO4.

Разложение N2O исследовали на чистом La2CuO4 и на La2CuO4 с добавкой LaNi5 в 5–10 вес.%, в интервале температур 240–490°C и при исходном давлении N2O 50 и 200 торр. Добавка LaNi5 уменьшает энергию активации, по сравнению с чистым соединением. Это объясняют дисперсией NiO на La2CuO4.
