Interactions between the active components with the support are one of the fundamentally factors in determining the catalytic performance of a catalyst. In this study, we investigated the interaction between CeO$$_{2}$$ and LaFeO$$_{3}$$, the two important oxygen storage materials in catalysis area, by tuning the sizes of CeO$$_{2}$$ particles and highlight a two-fold effect of the strong oxide-oxide interaction in determining the catalytic activity and selectivity for preferential CO oxidation in hydrogen feeds. It is found that the anchoring of ultra-fine CeO$$_{2}$$ particles at the framework of three-dimensional-ordered macroporous LaFeO$$_{3}$$ surface results in a strong interaction between the two oxides that induces the formation of abundant uncoordinated cations and oxygen vacancy at the interface. This discovery demonstrates that in hybrid oxide-based catalysts, tuning the interaction among different components is essential for balancing the catalytic activity and selectivity.
