Nitrogen oxide spoils the environment when it reacts with oxygen; however, the catalytic converter breaks it up, reducing the amount of nitrogen oxide being released. In the reaction 2CO + O2 → 2CO2, oxygen is added to carbon monoxide to create carbon dioxide, which is practically harmless. Oxygen is also added in the reaction CxH2x+2 + [(3x+1)/2]O2 → xCO2 + (x+1)H2O to unburnt hydrocarbons in order to create carbon dioxide and water, which are again harmless. Catalytic converters play a major role in assisting in the reactions in order to change the products by rearranging and breaking up the
The advantage of AOP is that they provide many ways for the production of intermediate transitory radicals & thus increases the flexibility for specific chemical treatments. AOPs are classified according to the reactive phase (homogeneous and heterogeneous) or by formation of transient radical methods (chemical, electro-chemical, sono-chemical and phot... ... middle of paper ... ... recovery of the Catalyst should be simple and it could be reused effectively for more no of time. • The pollutant should be degraded efficiently.

Abstract: Oxyhydrogen is a gas which is formed during electrolysis of water. It is purely a mixture of oxygen and hydrogen. It can influence greatly in the combustion of fuels in Internal Combustion engines because of its comparatively better fuel characteristics than gasoline. Since it is a gas it can diffuse much easier than any other gasoline fuel. Thus when both gasoline and oxyhydrogen is fed to engine simultaneously, Oxyhydrogen ignites prior to gasoline and then spreads the flame.
In contrast, WGS reaction (Eq. 2) which occurs concomitantly with CO methanation has received considerable attention because of its potential application in automotive exhaust gas cleaning with respect to CO emissions [xxvii,xxviii]. This reaction is accepted to follow a simple Langmuir-Hinshelwood (LH) process whereby CO2 is formed through the associative reaction of chemisorbed CO with the oxygen surface atoms produced by water activation. CO*+O* oxidation step is mostly believed as the kinetically-relevant due to the significant activation barrier of this step on Pt surfaces [xxix]. In addition, CO can also be oxidized by OH* forming formate (HCOO*) or carboxyl (COOH*) surface intermediates [xxx], which then directly decompose or react with OH* or O* forming CO2.
Hydrogen has been produced by various methods which include chemical reaction, electrolysis, light fermentation and dark fermentation. Chemical method involves the production of gases at lab scale using Kipp’s apparatus that consists of three bulbs stacked .Acids reacts with the metals on the middle bulb, generating gas. Thus the gas stops the further reaction by increasing the pressure in the lower bulb . Though the above mentioned method might be simple has certain other limitation towards to large-scale production economically. In electrolysis electrodes were operated at low voltage under high temperature and pressure for splitting up the water molecules into hydrogen and oxygen atoms .The efficiency of electrolysis depends on the void fraction between the electrodes at a particular voltage drop value and current density .
While in the case of steam reforming process heat is supplied from external source. The condition for reaction is also important to obtain good conversion and hydrogen selectivity. It was found that steam to carbon ratio, oxygen to carbon ratio (in case of autothermal reforming) and reaction temperature affect to hydrogen yield .

The second metal that gives the best performance will be selected as a modifier of Ni/Al2O3 to study the effect of second metal content on the activity of the catalyst.
At a cathode, e- and H+ ions combine with oxygen to form water (H2O), this results in power generation . MFC has limited open circuit voltage (OCV) of 1.14 V because of the standard redox potential of NADH/ NAD+ and O2/H2O of -0.32 V and +0.82 V respectively . NAD+ (Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide) is a coenzyme found in all living cells. It is involved in redox reactions, carrying electrons in reaction during metabolism. Double chamber MFC has been proven more efficient over single chamber MFC for treatment efficiency as removal of COD, BOD, nitrate, etc.
On the other hand it can accelerate the electrode reaction with stirring and shaking which decreased concentration polarization. Other than that the electrode performance of the cathode can be improved by adding a catalyst to promote the electrochemical activity of the electrode reaction. 3.6 Iron activation time The surface of iron should be activated before using it because there is a passivation layer of oxide film on the surface of iron. Studies have shown that K vaule has the stability of the reaction with activating by diluted hydrochloric acid after 20min. Therefore, the appropriate activation time may be 20min.

This situation happens due to the low dielectric constant nature in supercritical water, making it as a good solvent for non-polar substance like para-xylene. Therefore, it can be concluded that the reaction and yield of the reaction could be adjusted by the modification of reaction temperature.
This reaction is carried out at low temperatures because the diazonium salt is stable at low temperatures. At low temperatures the system is stable and the molecular movement is quite low. Potassium iodide and water is added and the mixture separates, the mixture is put on a hot plate and heated to 40ᵒ once the mixture has reached this temperature a vigorous reaction occurs, gas evolution (purple gas) and the separation of the tan solids take place, this happens because once the gas is let out the carbon receives a plus charge given from the electron which turns in to a free radial which is more stable than a plus charge. When this reaction completes the chorine and the free radical combine. Potassium iodide works as a facilitator for this
