Abstract:

Whetlerite degraded by exposure to atmospheric contaminants is treated to restore its ability to adsorb toxic air pollutants by passing through it a flow of an oxygen-containing gas further containing from 500 to 2000 ppm of carbon monoxide and water vapor corresponding to 60 to 90 percent relative humidity at 60 to 80 degrees C.
