Selective catalytic reduction of O2 with excess H2 in the presence of C2H4 or C3H6

Author affiliations

Abstract

The selective reduction of molecular oxygen with excess H2 in the presence of alkenes was achieved successfully for the first time: silver supported on alumina catalysts exhibited full conversion of O2 at temperature as low as 50 °C, while the conversion of ethene or propene remained essentially zero up to 250 °C.
