The catalytic properties of some mixed zirconates with the pyrochlore or fluorite structure have been investigated using CO oxidation as the test reaction. The presence of terbium ions, leading to mixed conductivity, and the extent of pyrochlore ordering affect the kinetic behaviour and the catalytic activity of the investigated materials. Bismuth-containing compounds show an increased rate of reoxidation.
