Manganese-based catalysts have attracted much attention due to their excellent performance for NO reduction with NH3 (NH3-SCR) at low temperatures. In the current study, the novel metal Sb was modified into Mn/TiO2 and Fe–Mn/TiO2, and the NOx conversion was compared with those of Mn/TiO2 and Fe–Mn/TiO2 catalysts to investigate the effect of the Sb. The NOx reduction activities of the catalysts were evaluated in the temperature range of 100–250 °C at a space velocity of 60,000 h−1. The physicochemical properties of all the catalysts were characterized by Brunauer–Emmett–Teller surface area, temperature-programmed desorption of ammonia, temperature-programmed reduction, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction, and high-resolution transmission electron microscopy. Interestingly, the Sb-promoted Mn-based catalysts showed significantly higher NOx conversion than the other catalysts with or without 6 vol% of H2O. The high performance of the Sb-modified catalysts could be related to the increase of acid sites and redox properties.
