A series of CuO-Ce0.6Zr0.4O2 catalysts with different contents (0-25%, w) of CuO were prepared by microwave heating decomposition and characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), N2 adsorption-desorption (BET), and temperature-programmed reduction with hydrogen (H2-TPR). The activities of the catalysts for CO oxidation were evaluated using a microreactor-gas chromatograph system. The results show that the CuO-Ce0.6Zr0.4O2 catalyst exhibits the best catalytic activity for CO oxidation at a CuO content of 15%. Three copper species are present in the catalysts, i.e., highly dispersed, small and large CuO particles. The highly dispersed and small CuO particles are responsible for the promotion of catalytic activity while the large CuO particles inhibit catalytic activity.
