Abstract: Soot has been the cause of global warming since the dawn of diesel engines. Soot oxidation in the diesel particulate filters fixated at the exhaust of the engine has been a boon to reduce the particulate matter from entering the atmosphere. Here we have attempted to synthesize the smooth powder of supported and macro-porous perovskite LaFeO 3 and its doped variant with 5, 10, 20, and 30% copper on B site. Subsequent catalysts, termed as 10,20, 30) with formula LaFe 1-x Cu x O 3 , were investigated as catalyst…
