Abstract
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. The escaping concentration from the reacting bed a function of time, flow rate, column length, and initial concentration; the influence of size of granules; the effect of relative humidity of air stream and moisture content of granules; and the 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 centers". Catalytically active centers do not retain their activity indefinitely, but become used up or poisoned with time. Theoretical treatment is similar to that of irreversible absorption of gas on solid absorbents.
