The activities of monolayer V2O5 catalysts for the selective reduction of NO with NH3 are compared with those of commercial available catalysts containing V and/or W. From steady state and pulse experiments it can be concluded that the reduction of surface sites proceeds either by NH3 + NO or by NH3 alone. The reoxidation of the reduced sites occurs by gaseous oxygen or NO. The experimental reaction stoichiometry can be explained in terms of suitable combinations of these four reactions.
