The Ga2O3-Al2O3-ZnO (GAZ) multi-component spinel powders with incorporated Cu2+, Co2+, Fe2+, Ni2+, Mn2+ and In2+ metal cations were synthesized by co-precipitation method from a mixed solution of nitrate salts. Spinel crystal structure of each composition was confirmed by XRD measurements. The multi-component oxide powders were tested in the reduction of nitrogen oxide (NO) under lean conditions. Among the catalysts tested, In2O3-containing GAZ with a pure spinel phase structure showed promising catalytic activity in the NO reduction in the presence of 10% H2O vapor. In addition, the effect of H2O vapor and SO2 on the selective reduction of NO over In2O3-GAZ/cordierite and In2O3-GAZ/metal honeycombs catalysts has been investigated.
