Adsorption and transformation of chlorinated hydrocarbons on zeolite Y-FAU modified by different metals such as Co, Pt or both were studied. The combined instrumental methods implied revealed that trichloro-ethylene reacts immediately after adsorption giving ethane and HCl as main products appearing in the gas phase, tetrachloroethane gives similar product distribution. CHClF2 transforms on the surface resulting in adsorbed CO and complex surface intermediates involving the acidic OH groups of the zeolite.
