  • Together with Emitec, we evaluated the potential of such a preturbo catalyst, shown here on the picture in the left upper corner. The addition of these catalysts to the standard system allowed on a modern diesel car to further improve the tailpipe emissions by about 30 %, as is apparent from the cumulated emissions over the NEDC, the red line with preturbo catalyst and the blue line with only the standard system

    9. 9. Working: Theory of Active Sites The Energy Path of a Catalysed & Uncatalysed Reaction.The active site may be viewed as the point on the catalyst material crystalline where theelectronic forces are optimum for the catalytic reaction to take place.CO and O2 are chemisorbed on the catalyst and can react readily because of their proximity andorientation. The process of adsorption also results in weakening of the bond between the atomswithin the CO molecule because some of the energy is shared with the surface. Thus, theadsorbed atoms of the molecules are less tightly bonded to the molecule and more easilyattracted to other atoms such as oxygen. The reaction between CO and oxygen is thus easierand more rapid. The products having achieved a lower energy state must desorb at the sametemperature, freeing the active site for additional reactions.
