Catalytic synthesis of ammonia using vibrationally excited nitrogen

The effect of vibrational relaxation

    Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review

    Abstract

    In a previous study we have considered the catalytic synthesis of ammonia in the presence of vibrationally excited nitrogen. The distribution over vibrational states was assumed to be maintained during the reaction, and it was shown that the yield
    of ammonia increased considerably compared to that from conventional synthesis. In the present study the nitrogen molecules are only excited at the inlet of a plug flow reactor, and the importance of vibrational relaxation is investigated. We show
    that vibrational excitation can give an enhanced yield of ammonia also in the situation where vibrational relaxation is allowed.
