Oxygen activation in a catalyst cage with help of ammonia
Oxygen activation is an important process in many catalytic reactions. The nature of this process in Cu-zeolite has been explored by researchers in KCK. The results from this study lays foundation for the understanding of catalytic reactions such as NOx reduction and partial hydrocarcon oxidation. The results have been published in ChemCatChem.
