Monolith washcoated catalysts with potential for diesel emission control have been developed. Two types of catalysts have been prepared for further study: (1) MnO x supported on granulated γ-Al2O3, (2) MnO x supported on cordierite monolith washcoated with γ-Al2O3. Both catalysts have been calcined at 500 and 900 °C and subsequently modified by doping with 0.1–1.0 wt% of Pt or Pd. The influence of the concentration of both manganese oxide (0–10 wt%) and noble metals Pt and Pd in the range 0–1.0 wt% on the catalytic activity in methane oxidation has been studied. Comparison of the catalytic activity of MnO x /Al2O3 and MnO x  + Pt(Pd)/Al2O3 with that of a standard 1 wt%Pt/Al2O3 catalyst shows the existence of a synergetic effect. This effect is more pronounced for the samples calcined at 900 °C. The developed monolithic catalysts MnO x  + Pt(Pd)/Al2O3 demonstrate higher activity and thermal stability (up to 900 °C) compared to the commercial monolithic catalyst (TWC’s).
