A variety of gold catalysts can be used to catalyze the oxidation of carbon monoxide at temperatures as low as −70 °C and are stable in a moistened gas atmosphere. The novel catalysts, prepared by coprecipitation, are composed of ultra-fine gold particles and one of the oxides of 3d transition metals of group VIII, namely, Fe, Co, and Ni.
