Kinetics : CatalyticConverters (4 Variations)
The following table illustrates the changes in emissions requirements for automobiles:
Pollutant1970 Emissions1990 EmissionsCA ultra-low emissions
CxHy1.5 g/mile0.25 g/mile0.04 g/mile
CO15 g/mile3.4 g/mile1.7 g/mile
NOx3.1 g/mile0.4 g/mile0.2 g/mile
Catalytic converters are used in automobiles to convert pollutants in engine emissions to benign products. Catalytic converters in today's automobiles are made of a porous ceramic brick that has been coated with catalysts, additives, stabilizers, and support materials. Corning has developed bricks that have very thin-walled channels with 600 channels per square inch. Which of the following research goals did they target?
