A gas-phase system to oxidize and remove the platinum and palladium from automotive catalytic converter units was studied. The effects of varying reaction temperature, time and reactant gas concentration upon yields were monitored using a colorimetric procedure based on the regent p-nitroso-N, N-dimethyl amiline. Chlorine plus carbon monoxide at 700°-900°C. displayed the most promise for commercial application.
