Most of LNT catalysts use noble metals such as Pt for low temperature NOx oxidation but there is an economic weakness. For the purpose of overcoming this, this study is to develop DeNOx catalyst for LNT excluding PGM (platinum group metal) such as Pt, Pd, Rh, etc. To do so, Al/Co/Ni catalyst selected as a preliminary test is used to study fundamental property and NOx’s conversion according to calcined temperature. Ultimately, that is, Al/Co/Ni mixed metal oxide which does not use PGM is selected and physicochemical characterization is performed by way of XRD, EDS, SEM, BET and ramp test and NOx conversion is also analyzed. This study shows that all samples consist of mixed oxides of spinel structure of Co2AlO4 and NiAl2O4 and have enough pore volume and size for redox. But as a result of NH3-TPD test, it is desired that calcined temperature needs to be maintained at 700 ℃ or lower. Also only samples which are processed under 500 ℃ satisfied NO and NOx conversion simultaneously through ramp test. Based on this study’s results, optimum calcined temperature for Al/Co/Ni=1.0/2.5/0.3 mixed metal oxide catalyst is 500 ℃.
