Hydrogenation of nitrogen oxide in acid solutions on Pt-C catalysts proceeds in dependence on experimental conditions either in purely diffusion region or in the diffusion and kinetically controlled region. The boundary between these two processes shifts to the higher ratio of NO to H2 partial pressures with increasing platinum content and decreasing intensity of agitation.
