## Abstract

Solutions of RhCl$_{3}\ \cdot$ xH$_{2}$O in ethanol and Ru(NO)$_{2}$[P(C$_{6}$H$_{5}$)$_{3}$]$_{2}$ in benzene catalyze the reduction of nitric oxide to nitrous oxide concomitant with the oxidation of carbon monoxide to carbon dioxide at ambient temperature and atmospheric pressure. The reaction, which is followed by gas chromatography and by the decrease in pressure of the system, proceeds to 47 percent conversion of the reactants after 63 hours.
