Reduction of NO by NH3 in the presence of O2 may occur on single Fe or Cu atoms or dimers incorporated into the inner walls of a zeolite. Although this process is of considerable intrinsic interest as an example of complex reactions running on single sites and is also important from the perspective of environmental chemistry, its mechanism is still open for debate. One of the likely schemes of the process implies the formation of N2 and H2O via the reaction of gas-phase NO and adsorbed NH3. The author presents a detailed analysis of the steady-state kinetics corresponding to this scheme. The model employed includes eleven elementary steps. The results obtained allow one to interpret the apparent reaction orders observed experimentally.
