                         solution. The product was filtered, washed, dried, extruded, and 
                         calcined at 1173 K. The catalyst performances were evaluated in 
                         N2O decomposition using a 2 N thruster, and the experimental 
                         results were compared to theoretical values. In addition, the 
                         performances of the bulk catalysts was compared to those of the 
                         conventional catalyst (5% Rh2O3/Al2O3) for N2O decomposition.",
