Summary of project:

 A manganese porphyrin supported onto multi-walled carbon nanotubes (Mn(TCPP)OAc@MWCNT) The heterogeneous catalyst was characterized by powder X-ray diffraction, FT-IR, atomic absorption and UV-vis spectroscopy, field emission scanning electron microscopy (FE-SEM) and also thermogravimetric analysis (TGA). The TGA curve shows that the nanocatalyst was thermally stable up to almost 350°C. This catalyst was found to be able to oxidize different synthetic textile dyes in aqueous media over a wide pH range at ambient temperature with tert-butyl hydroperoxide (TBHP) as the oxidant. The influence of some important parameters such as initial pH of the dye solution, temperature, and concentration of the catalyst, oxidant, and co-catalyst was inspected. Also, the ability of this heterogeneous catalyst in the oxidation of 2,6-dimethylphenol (with excellent selectivity for quinone (86%)) with TBHP in acetonitrile was evaluated. The separation and recycling of the catalyst are simple and catalyst can be used several successive cycles without a significant decrease in catalytic activity.
