Reliable kinetic rate data have not previously been available for the oxidation of carbon monoxide on platinum catalysts used in the control of automobile exhaust emissions. This paper discusses results of studies using an isothermal differential catalyst bed and confirms that mass transfer and pore diffusion did not control the reaction rate, so that the observed kinetics represent the true surface reaction rates.
