The thesis reports the synthesis of magnetic Mn-based nanocatalysts by different hydrothermal methods and their application in the oxidative reaction of aqueous phenol solutions for wastewater treatment. It was found that all the catalysts present high activity in peroxymonosulfate (PMS, Oxone) activation for the decomposition of phenol and good magnetic performance in separation. This research makes good contributions to materials synthesis and catalytic oxidation of organic pollutants in water.
