A characterization of double oxide systems containing Cr2O3 doped with MgO and supported on MgF2 was carried out. The catalysts were prepared by impregnation and co-impregnation methods and characterized by the Brunauer-Emmett-Teller method, EPR, and temperature programmed reduction. The results proved the interactions between supported oxides and the presence of spinel-like phase after treatment at 400 ºC. Magnesium oxide clearly influences the catalytic activity as well as selectivity of chromium catalysts supported on MgF2. The MgO-Cr2O3/MgF2 systems were active and selective in the reaction of CO oxidation at the room temperature and in the dehydrogenation of cyclohexene.
