A Diesel Oxidation Catalyst for Exhaust Emissions Reduction 932958

The authors used a mass spectrometer to determine an SOF reduction mechanism of a diesel oxidation catalyst. The results indicate that SOF reduction lies in the catalytic conversion of high molecular organic matter to low molecular organic matter. And unregulated emissions are also reduced through this conversion.
It is also found that the SOF reduction performance is highly dependent up on the condition of the wash coat.
There is some limitation to improving diesel oxidation catalyst performance because of the sulfur content found in diesel fuel.
Finally, the authors have determined what we think are the specifications of the presently best catalytic converter.
