In this study, we regulated copper loading and the atomic ratio of Cu/Mn and investigated the influence on interaction of the active species of Cu-Mn composite oxide catalyst supported on TiO2 (CuxMny/ TiO2). The results indicate that 15% (w, mass fraction) copper loading and a 1 : 1 atomic ratio of Cu/Mn favors formation of analogous Cu-Mn spinel (Cu1.5Mn1.5O4). With increasing loading of copper, oxygen transfers from the lattice oxygen species to defect oxygen. The changes in copper loading and the Cu/Mn atomic ratio have a large influence on the interaction between the active components and the catalytic activity. We found that 90% n-hexanal can be degraded by Cu15Mn15/TiO2 at 225 ℃ (T90). The excellent performance of Cu15Mn15/TiO2 is attributed to the higher contents of Cu2+ and Oads, which can achieve a dual redox process with Mn2+ in Cu15Mn15/TiO2. The analogous Cu-Mn spinel active ingredient can maintain high catalytic stability by redox cycles.
