The catalytic conversion of carbon monoxide (CO) into carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) at a low temperature is very important procedure for all living beings present in the environment. The present study represents that the addition of gold (Au) nano-particles, by the deposition-precipitation method into the hopcalite (CuMnOx) catalyst has been improving their performances for CO oxidation. The CuMnOx catalyst loading by 0.75wt% Au was representing that the best catalytic activity for CO oxidation than

The small amount of Au doping (0.75wt%) in CuMnOx catalyst improves their performances for CO oxidation at an ambient conditions. The gold nano-particles will be introducing the new active sites into the CuMnOx catalyst surfaces and decreases the deactivation of catalyst. The lattice oxygen movement was a major important factor which can influences the performances of hopcalite catalyst for CO oxidation. The calcinations strategies (reactive calcinations and traditional calcinations) of the precursor have huge impacts on the performances of resulting catalysts. The reusability of Au promoted CuMnOx catalyst was also measured and found that this catalyst does not have any major changes in its catalytic performances still after the reuses.
