With the continuous growth in catalysis research, it is always the intention of both the manufacturers and the users to minimize the cost of catalysts. Catalysts have a worldwide market of several billion dollars. Transition elements have a respectable position in catalysis as they can act as industrially important catalysts in various reactions such as hydrodesulphurization, polymerization, reformation, oxidation, etc. The study of crystal structure of certain transition metal oxide ores shows that they can act as a metal-support system. Higher temperature reduction will form active sites in Fe-Ti spinel ores in which Fe3+ occupies the tetrahedral sites. In such a case, strong metal–support interactions will play an important role in this kind of metal–support system. Ores will be certainly a cheaper version in catalysis.
