Manganese functionalized silicate nanoparticles with interparticle porosity act as a superior Fenton-type nanocatalyst in WHPCO (wet hydrogen peroxide catalytic oxidation) as they can decompose 80% of a test organic compound in 30 minutes at neutral pH and room temperature. By combined use of catalytic tests and X-ray absorption spectroscopic techniques (XANES, EXAFS) direct evidence is given that the superior activity of the nanocatalyst is uniquely attributed to framework manganese.
