In the last 15 to 20 years, complex research work in the lowering of the toxicity of exhaust gases of the internal combustion engine has been done. Out of the various proposed methods, the broadest dissemination was achieved by the method of the catalytic afterburning of the products of incomplete fuel combustion in neutralizers. In the existing catalytic neutralizers that have been constructed abroad as well as in the Soviet Union, platinum either on various carriers or in alloys with other components was used as the catalyzer. Manganese catalyzers for the afterburning of the carbon monoxide in exhaust gases are being investigated in the Academy of Sciences of the Georgian Soviet Socialist Republic. Preliminary results of these investigations are given in the present report.
