Air pollution by NO is a serious problem. An attractive way of NOx abatement is to reduce NO by hydrocarbon in an oxidizing atmosphere. Currently the best catalytic system to achieve this reduction is transition metals exchanged ZSM-5(1-3). Unfortunately these catalysts have problems with hydrothermal stability. A possible solution to this is to fine oxidic systems that are active for the hydrocarbon reduction of NO in an oxidizing atmosphere.
