A BaFeO3-x+Cu-ZSM-5 coupled catalyst was designed and synthesized to eliminate the NOx emitted from lean-burn exhausts, providing an alternative to the traditional noble-metal-based NOx storage reduction (NSR) catalysts. During the lean-burn period, the NO oxidation and storage processes mainly occurred over the BaFeO3-x catalyst. During the fuel-rich period, the released NOx from the BaFeO3-x catalyst was further reduced over the Cu-ZSM-5 catalyst. Our results show that, compared with the BaFeO3-x and Cu-ZSM-5 catalyst alone, the operating temperature window of the coupled BaFeO3-x+Cu-ZSM-5 catalyst is extended from 250 to 400 ℃, and its NOx elimination performance is significantly improved. The maximum NOx conversion of the coupled catalyst was 98%, while the N2 selectivity was close to 100%.
