Abstract
The oxidation of carbon monoxide in an air stream by silver permanganate on weakly basic and acidic metallic oxide carriers takes place readily at ordinary temperatures. Escaping concentration from the reacting bed as a function of time, flow-rate, column length, and initial concentration; influence of size of granules; effect of relative humidity of air stream and moisture content of granules; relation between activity and mole composition were studied. The kinetics of oxidation agree with the assumption that the rate is proportional both to the concentration of gas in the stream and to the concentration of 'active centres'. The catalytically active centres do not retain their activity indefinitely, but become used up or 'poisoned' with time. The theoretical treatment is similar to that of the irreversible absorption of gas on solid absorbents.
