Six transition metal oxides were added in ceria-modified titania using a sol-gel method for catalytic oxidation of toluene. An MnOx based catalyst was found to be the most active one, with which toluene could be decomposed completely at 200 ºC. The greatest Mn/Ti and molar ratio of the mobile oxygen to the total oxygen concentration, together with a large surface area and a low reduction peak-starting temperature, would result in its best activity in toluene oxidation.
