Copper manganese oxides are prepared using a coprecipitation procedure and studied for the oxidation of CO at ambient temperature. In particular, the effect of the ageing tune, i.e. the time that the precipitate remains in contact with the precipitating medium, is investigated. It is shown that this parameter is of crucial importance in controlling the catalytic performance and that catalysts which are aged for ⩽30 min or ⩾ 300 min give the best performance. Preliminary characterisation using powder X-ray diffraction indicates that a combination between CuO and copper manganese oxide may be responsible for the enhanced activity observed with these samples.
