Abstract

Manganese-based materials have been regarded as a kind of widely used heterogeneous catalysts for peroxymonosulfate (PMS) activation in water remediation. In this work, yolk–shell Mn3O4 (YS-Mn3O4) microspheres with a porous structure were synthesized by a simple hydrothermal method with manganese glycerate (Mn-GL) as a self-sacrificing template. YS-Mn3O4 exhibits high Brunauer–Emmett–Teller surface area (81.0 m2/g) and pore volume (0.18 cm3/g), which are essentially favorable for the development of its catalytic activity. When YS-Mn3O4 is employed as a PMS activator, it can exhibit good performance in the degradation of bisphenol A (BPA). Some influential parameters, such as catalyst dosage, oxone concentration, reaction temperature, BPA concentration, and pH value, and some inorganic ions have been analyzed in detail. Electron paramagnetic resonance examination and radical quenching results demonstrate that OH and SO4 should be responsible for the rapid decomposition of BPA in the YS-Mn3O4/PMS system. This work will be significant for tailoring the morphology of materials and arousing more attention to enhance the stability and reusability of catalysts.
