The Use of Photocatalysis and Titanium Dioxide on Diesel Exhaust Fumes for NOx Reduction

The Use of Photocatalysis and Titanium Dioxide on Diesel Exhaust Fumes for NOx Reduction

Nitrogen oxides are emitted in large quantities by vehicles, and solutions to the problem are sought after. Efforts towards abatement include Selective Catalytic Reduction, catalytic converters, and redesigning engines to make them more efficient. This article focuses on the photocatalytic oxidation, which involves the use of titanium dioxide and ultraviolet radiation to oxidise nitrogen oxides to nitrates. To test this, the interior of a...
