Nanosized Mn oxide/boron nitride composite as a catalyst for water oxidation

Abstract

Herein, a nanosized Mn oxide/boron nitride composite is reported as a catalyst for water oxidation. The study is interesting because the nanosized boron nitride is one of the most stable and inert compounds that can form a new composite with Mn oxides. The composite was synthesized by a straightforward and simple procedure and characterized by some methods. These methods showed that the composite is a supported Mn(III,IV) oxide on boron nitride. The water-oxidizing activity of the composite was studied under the presence of cerium(IV) ammonium nitrate and photoproduced Ru(bpy)33+ as oxidants. The optimized catalyst calcined at 200-300 °C showed a turnover frequency of 0.15 (mmolO2/s.molMn) under the presence of cerium(IV) ammonium nitrate.
