# Is the decomposition reaction of nitrogen monoxide to dinitrogen and dioxygen possible?

Is the reaction $\ce{2NO -> N2 + O2}$ possible? Of course with some kind of catalyst plus high temperature. How can I find the answer to such questions and where can I find more information about this reaction?

• @Mithoron In catalytic converters, don't they need a reduction agent, ie. hydrocarbons or carbon monoxide? I was clear that I did NOT include these in my equation in my question. – ergon Aug 22 '16 at 12:25
