A series of rare earth perovskite-type oxides La0.9Sr0.1CoO3, La0.9Sr0.1MnO3 and La0.9Sr0.1Co0.5Mn0.5O3 were prepared by sol-gel method and characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), specific surface analysis (BET), field emission scanning electron microscopy (FE-SEM) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM) techniques. The results showed that for La0.9Sr0.1Co0.5Mn0.5O3 sample, Sr2+ and Mn3+ ions partly replaced La3+ and Co3+ ions and entered perovskite crystal lattice, and finally a perfect crystal structure of perovskite was formed. Moreover, these powders presented sphericity granules with particle size of about 20nm and satisfactory pore structure. With the doping of Sr2+ ions in a certain range, the coexisting system of Mn3+- Mn4+ and Co3+- Co4+ as well as the concentration of oxygen vacancies were increased, thus leading to the higher catalytic activity of the prepared catalysts.
