What is a catalytic converter and when is it used?

I think a catalytic converter is used to convert toxic cases like carbon monoxide to something less toxic and is used by coating an exhaust engine with a catalytic converter (I think like platinum?) Can someone confirm

Yep, this is correct. Additionally, catalytic converters would be considered heterogeneous catalysts and are an example of adsorption. I hope this helps!
