Pressure dependence of the reaction rate for CO oxidation at a constant contact time of and variable reactor pressure, , (1% CO, 1% in , . The higher values of the reaction rates were obtained after on stream, the lower values after additional reaction (at the points lie on top of each other). Measurements in a standard plug-flow micro-reactor at atmospheric pressure prior to deactivation (empty triangle) and after on stream (filled triangles) are included for comparison. Empty circle: extrapolated rate at the start of the reaction at in the low-pressure reactor, using the deactivation measured in the standard microreactor.
