CH4, C2H4, C2H6, C3H6, and C3H8, and NOx

The chemical kinetic mechanism was validated to describe the promotion effect of hydrocarbons (methane, ethane, ethene, propene and propane) on NO to NO2 conversion in a atmospheric flow reactor. The NO level was 20 ppm and the hydrocarbon level was 50 ppm. The flow reactor temperature ranged from 600 to 1100 K.
