Adsorption and coadsorption of NH3 and NO on copper-on-alumina catalysts prepared from formate precursors by calcination at 670 and 870 K was studied by means of FTIR spectroscopy. It has been established that the sample prepared at lower temperature exhibits a higher activity with respect to NO reduction with ammonia.
