Compounds Using the Catalytic Film,"
The first patent and these uses nitric acid, alkali metal nitrate, gasses, or any nitrogen oxide.
There are also numerous patents regarding Pd&Pt/c catalytic reduction of nitric acid and nitrate salts to prepare hydroxylamine in eighty percent and higher yields when the catalyst was treated with a halogen. Seems simple enough if you don't care about using the catalyst day in day out for weeks. Making it possible to skip the halogen treatemnt. I like the electrolytic methods better though.
