Abstract: In this work five catalysts named CeO2 (named Ceria), Fe/CeO2 (called the Iron doped Ceria), Co/CeO2 (named Cobalt doped Ceria), Ni/CeO2 (Nickel doped Ceria), Cu/CeO2 (Copper doped Ceria) were prepared. The catalysts prepared were subjected to several tests Like XRD, Microscopic Raman and Tunneling Electron Microscopy to determine their basic characteristic properties. The transition metals were introduced into the Ceria to form the Metal doped Ceria Catalysts using Sol-Gel method. Through this we compared the data obtained and concluded the catalyst which has best catalytic activity among these.
