|Abstract:||<img src='/image/spc_char/gamma.gif' border=0>-FeMnO<sub>3</sub> samples with and without Pd metal impregnation have been prepared by co-precipitation method and investigated by powder X-ray diffraction and <sup>57</sup>Fe Mossbauer spectroscopy techniques, for its bulk characteristics. Catalytic activity of these samples has been studied for CO oxidation reaction by injecting CO or (CO+O<sub>2</sub>) pulses over their surface, with a view to delineate the role of Pd metal and reducible cations during this reaction. Pd metal impregnation over the surface of <img src='/image/spc_char/gamma.gif' border=0>-FeMnO<sub>3</sub>, leads to significant improvement in its catalytic activity, particularly at lower temperatures. Based on these experiments, clear evidence for the low temperature (T~350 K) disproportionation of CO over the surface of Pd metal particles and lattice oxygen incorporation during CO oxidation reaction, have been presented. From the comparative study of Fe<sub>2</sub>O<sub>3</sub>, Mn<sub>2</sub>O<sub>3</sub> and FeMnO<sub>3</sub>, the existence of any synergistic effects between Fe<sup>3+</sup> and Mn<sup>3+</sup> cations, is ruled out for FeMnO<sub>3</sub>, mixed oxide system.|
