The MnO(x) and CeO(x) were in situ supported on carbon nanotubes (CNTs) by a poly(sodium 4-styrenesulfonate) assisted reflux route for the low-temperature selective catalytic reduction (SCR) of NO with NH(3). X-Ray diffraction (XRD), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), high-resolution TEM (HRTEM)...
