Fractal Dynamics of the Catalytic CO — Oxidation — Application of fractal cellular automata models

Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 258)


Let us regard the apparently simple looking oxidation reaction of CO to yield CO2. As a catalyst we use palladium single crystals distributed in amorphous Al2O3- carriers or located inside zeolite crystals [1–3].
