The identification of metal isocyanate (M-NCO) species
on metal surfaces has led to the proposal of their involvement
as intermediates in the metal-catalyzed pollution removal
reaction of nitric oxide and carbon monoxide as ammonia and
carbon dioxide.' A homogeneous model for isocyanate formation
from the interaction of CO and NO at a metal site
is reaction l.
