The influence of cocations (Cr and Ag) on the activity of Cu/CeO 2 catalysts in the selective reduction of NOx with C 3H6 has been investigated in this study. The reduction of NOx under lean conditions was greatly improved by loading Cr and Ag onto a Cu/CeO2 catalytic system. All the synthesized bimetal catalysts were characterized using XRD and TPR-H2. The better metal-support interaction and metal dispersion shown by Cu/Ag/CeO2 have elevated its performance compared to the Cu/Cr/CeO2 catalyst. By having such salient features, the competitiveness factor (S SCR-HC) assigned by Cu/Ag/CeO2 was generally better than that of the other tested catalysts. The presence of O2 was proven to be a very crucial factor for promoting the selective reduction of NO x with C3H6.
