The catalytic activity of Co(III) and Fe(III) hydroxides as well as of their mixtures produced by co-precipitation with hydroxides of some highly charged transition and non-transition metals has been studied over the pH range from 5 to 11. In some cases mixed hydroxides demonstrate an increase in efficiency of the catalytic action.
