Catalytic oxidation of benzene was carried out over perovskite-type oxides prepared by evaporation-to-dryness techniques. LaMnO3 showed higher activity than LaCoO3 and LaFeO3 due to higher surface area and higher oxidizing ability for benzene. Effect of Sr substitution for La on the activity of LaMnO3 depended on the calcination conditions.
