The steady-state kinetics of acetylene oxidation has been studied in the framework of automotive exhaust gas catalysis over a commercially available three-way catalyst. Experiments under cold-start conditions have been carried out in a laboratory fixed-bed reactor, which can adequately be described by the developed elementary step model and rate parameters.
