Ternary nanostructured CuO/Ti0.8Ce0.2O2 catalysts were prepared by a one-step surfactant-assisted method of nanoparticle assembly. The textural and structural properties of the CuO/Ti0.8Ce0.2O2 catalysts were characterized by XRD, TGA, BET, XPS and H2-TPR. Their catalytic performance for low-temperature CO oxidation was studied by using a catlab system. CuO supported on binary Ti0.8Ce0.2O2 support showed higher catalytic activity than CuO supported on single CeO2 or TiO2 support. The calcination temperature had a remarkable influence on the catalytic activity of the CuO/Ti0.8Ce0.2O2 catalysts. The CuO/Ti0.8Ce0.2O2 catalyst calcined at 500 °C exhibited the highest catalytic activity with T50% and T100% at 82 and 123 °C, respectively. According to the XRD, BET and H2-TPR analyses, the higher surface areas and more highly dispersed small particle size CuO should be responsible for the high catalytic activity of catalysts.
