Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0972855A1] Prototype reactor and method for the ammonia synthesis at atmospheric pressure. This invention relates to the ammonia production from its elements (N2 and H2) at atmospheric pressure. This was achieved in a solid state proton (H<+>) conducting cell - reactor. Hydrogen was flowing over the anode (6) and was converted into protons that were transported through the solid electrolyte (4) and reached the cathode (5)(Pd) over which nitrogen was passing. <IMAGE>
