A series of Zn-Al-Ce mixed oxides was synthesized by a co-precipitation method. The obtained samples were characterized with respect to composition (XRF), structure (XRD, FT-IR) and texture (BET). Zn-Al-Ce mixed oxides were tested as catalysts of diesel soot combustion. The best catalytic activity was found for Zn2Ce oxide system, which operated in the temperature range of 350-500°C.
