Sulfur Storage and Release from Automotive Catalysts 872134
An H2S odor problem has appeared for certain vehicles fitted with modern three-way catalysts. A sulfur storage/H2s release mechanism is proposed as a source of the odor problem. The effects of various operating parameters on the release of H2S are presented. Two methods of modifying three-way catalysts to minimize H2S release while maintaining good catalyst performance and high temperature durability are demonstrated.
