This chapter discusses the selective reduction of nitric oxide (NO) to nitrogen (N2) in the presence of oxygen. Catalytic performance of cobalt (Co)-ZSM5 prepared by solid-state ion exchange (SSIE) method is compared with Ag-ZSM5 prepared by LSIE method for the selective reduction of NO with propylene in the presence of oxygen. Propane (C3H6) acts as a reductant more effectively for the production of N2 over Ag-ZSM5 than Co-ZSM5, and a route for producing N2 exclusively existed over Ag-ZSM5 from the kinetic results.
