Abstract

The small pore zeolite chabazite (SSZ-13) in the copper exchanged form is a very efficient material for the selective catalytic reduction by ammonia (NH 3 ) of nitrogen oxides (NOx) from the exhaust of lean burn engines, typically diesel powered vehicles. The full mechanism occurring during the NH 3 –SCR process is currently debated with outstanding questions including the nature and role of the catalytically active sites. Time-resolved operando spectroscopic techniques have been used to provide new level of insights in to the mechanism of NH 3 –SCR, to show that the origin of stable Cu(I) species under SCR conditions is potentially caused by an interaction between NH 3 and the Cu cations located in eight ring sites of the bulk of the zeolite and is independent of the NH 3 –SCR of NOx occurring at Cu six ring sites within the zeolite.
