Kinetic modeling of homogeneous mercury oxidation: the importance of NO and H2O in predicting oxidation in coal-derived systems.


This paper develops and evaluates an elementary reaction mechanism for homogeneous Hg0 oxidation that accounts for major interactions among Cl-species and other pollutants in coal-derived exhausts. Most importantly, interactions among NO and Cl-species were found to exert a strong and previously unrecognized impact on homogeneous Hg0 oxidation under some… (More)
