Uses of Palladium in Automotive Emission Control Catalysts 880281

On a global basis there is a resurgence of interest in the use of palladium in automotive emission control catalysts because of cost, availability and performance advan­tages under certain operating con­ditions relative to more expensive noble metals. This paper reviews a variety of potential vehicle applic­ations for the use of palladium containing catalysts. Included in the study are for the replacement of platinum by palladium in conventional platinum/rhodium systems, palladium-only three-way catalysts, palladium-only dual bed catalysts and two-stroke and lean-burn engine applications.
