Cerium samarium oxides catalysts with K+ doping on the wall surface of cordierite honeycomb ceramics were preparation by sol–gel and dipping processes. Scanning electron microscopy, energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction and Fourier transform-infrared spectroscopy were used to characterize the structural morphology and phase compositions. Through XPS analysis and H2-TPR measurement of monolithic catalyst, it is found that potassium ions improve the oxygen mobility in CeO2 lattice and form surface active oxygen, increase the amount of oxygen adsorbed on the surface and improve the oxidation–reduction capacity. The catalytic combustion research demonstrates that T10, T50 and Tm in samples (Ce/Sm-0 K, Ce/Sm-0.3 K, Ce/Sm-0.5 K and Ce/Sm-0.7 K) decrease significantly compared with the blank reference (Cordierite). And the optimized sample Ce/Sm-0.5 K possess the lowest T10 (389.6 °C), the lowest T50 (425.5 °C), and the lowest Tm (419 °C) in comparison with other samples. The cycle stability investigation reveals that sample Ce/Sm-0.5 K has excellent structural stability and stable catalytic performance, which has potential application in soot catalytic combustion field.
