This study illustrates for the first time the performance of nano-manganese ferrite supported-manganese oxide catalyst in benzyl alcohol (BzOH) oxidation without employing any oxidizing agent other than the air present in the reactor. The magnetic catalyst displayed moderate activity but 100% selectivity in conversion to benzaldehyde (BzH) under mild conditions. Compared to the other heterogeneous MnOx-based systems, the catalyst deserves attention in that an enhancement of the activity can be achieved by tuning the core-shell composition which plays a synergistic role in the catalytic reaction.
