    Federal standards dictate how much pollution autos may emit, and automakers decide how to achieve the pollution limits. The emission reductions of the 1970's came about because of fundamental improvements in engine design, plus the addition of charcoal canisters to collect hydrocarbon vapors and exhaust gas recirculation valves to reduce nitrogen oxides. The advent of "first generation" catalytic converters in 1975 significantly reduced hydrocarbon and carbon monoxide emissions. The use of catalytic converters provided a huge indirect benefit as well. Because lead inactivates the catalyst, 1975 saw the widespread introduction of unleaded gasoline. This resulted in dramatic reductions in ambient lead levels and alleviated many serious environmental…

    CHAPTER 1 INTRODUCTION 1.1 BACKGROUND The catalytic converter was invented by Eugene Houdry, a French mechanical engineer and skilled in catalytic oil refining who lived in the United States around 1950. The invention of catalytic converter has a major role in controlling harmful emissions. When the paper of smog in Los Angeles was published, Houdry became anxious about the role of smoke stack and automobile exhaust in air pollution and established a company, Oxy-Catalyst. Houdry primary…

    P5+ has a higher catalytic activity even with 0.5 wt% loading, and the Mn of PPO reached 4,080, 7,770, and 15,000 g/mol after 5, 13, and 28 h, respectively. The PDI of polyether from Pi4P1+ and P5+ was narrow in the range 1.027–1.036, but was higher (1.059–1.093) for Cy4P1+. Noteworthy, PPO catalyzed with Pi4P1+ displayed an extremely low unsaturation degree (0.004–0.008 mmol/g) and high average functionality (2.93–2.98). In Table 2, the by-product, which has a great influence on the…

    measured? 7. Design the basic interface circuit (using an op amp) for a temperature sensor that covers a range of 0° to 70°C if the output of the sensor is 2 mV/1°C and the ADC voltage range is 0 to 4 V. 8. Design an amplifier suitable for converting the output voltage from an LM35 temperature sensor (10 mV/°C) into a signal that makes use of the full input voltage range (0-5V) of the HCS12 ADC port pins. Assume the LM35 is to measure temperatures from 0°C up to +150°C. Show work and…

    The catalytic converter system in vehicle exhaust tried to eliminate nitrogen oxide emissions, carbon monoxide emissions and hydrocarbon emissions which is unburned fuels. In a catalytic converter has two blocks which is reduction catalyst and oxidation catalyst. The reduction catalyst is made up of platinum and rhodium while the oxidation catalyst is made up of platinum and palladium. During combustion, the toxic gas enter into the first catalytic converter and heat up simultaneously. This…
