Question details

Which of the following is not true? O CO and other incompletely oxidized forms of carbon are produced in greater quantities when gasoline is combusted with too much oxygen present. Carbon-based compounds are converted in a catalytic converter to yield CO2 and H20. Catalytic converters can facilitate both oxidation and reduction reactions simultaneously Reduction of the nitrogen in NO (to yield N2 and O2) is energetically favorable, but because the activation energy is high, the reaction O must either be catalyzed or done at high temperatures to proceed at an appreciable rate. Catalytic converters that reduce the nitrogen in NO can also reduce the sulfur in SO, resulting in production of the toxic gas H25 when sulfur is present in the fuel.
