Apart from the material and kinetics, other several factors are affecting the multiplex reaction, simultaneous NOx–soot removal via catalysts. It is believed that most catalytic reactions occur on the surfaces. Hence, the discussions on surface modification in addition to composition design are indispensable to this process. The surface modifications by a variety of preparation techniques will consequently cause the alteration of many macrolevel parameters including surface areas and morphology and in turn influence the reactant/intermediate adsorption and desorption behaviors on the surface.
