Unformatted text preview: 2 with the help of a catalytic converter (also include the net rreaction). (3 pts) Catalytic converters use CO as a reducing agent along with Pt, Pd, and Rh as reducing catalysts. (1 pt) NO + CO N 2 O + CO 2 (0.5 pt) N 2 O + CO N 2 + CO 2 (0.5 pt) N et Reaction : NO + 2CO N 2 + 2CO 2 (1 pt) 3). Please diagram the general reaction mechanism of base-catalyzed hydrolysis. Would base-catalyzed hydrolysis be more likely to occur in freshwater or seawater? Why (please briefly explain)? (3 pts) (scheme is in lecture notes) More likely to occur in freshwater due to alkaline ph (more hydroxyl groups available)...
