Formation of N3 during interaction of NO with reduced ceria

Author affiliations


We show that the first stages of interaction between NO and reduced ceria comprise the formation of azides, N3, with simultaneous oxidation of Ce3+ to Ce4+. This finding imposes revision on some current views of catalytic NO conversion and may contribute to design of new deNOx materials and processes.
