We use Density Functional Theory (DFT) to describe a novel way for metal free catalytic reduction of nitric oxide NO utilizing boron doped graphene. The present study is based on the observation that boron doped graphene and O-N=N-O- act as Lewis acid-base pair allowing the graphene surface to act as a catalyst. The process implies electron assisted N=N bond formation prior to N-O dissociation. Two N2 + O2 product channels, one of which favoring N2O formation, are envisaged as outcome of the catalytic process. Beside, we show also that the N2 + O2 formation pathways are contrasted by a side reaction that brings to N3O3- formation and decomposition into N2O + NO2-.
