Quiroz Torres et. al., Catal. Today, 17, 2011, Conclusion Good catalytic result with the sample 40% Mn-W-C200 (100% HCHO conversion into CO 2 at 120°C) The impregnation method deeply influences manganese particle morphology (particles are as a majority included in the mesoporous channel of SBA-15 with the « 2 solvents » method) These different morphologies lead to different reactivity in HCHO oxidation (Catalytic activity is better when the impregnation is performed in water) Exposure to formaldehyde has been the topic of recent considerations of many governments around the world. This pollutant can be found in industrial air (e.g. wood and furniture industry) and in indoor air. Serious health problems such as nasopharyngeal cancer can be caused by a long-term exposure to an air containing a low concentration of formaldehyde (even less than 1 ppm). Several post- treatment technologies have been studied. Catalytic oxidation seems to be a promising solution. Formaldehyde can be converted selectivity in carbon dioxide and water with a relatively low energy consumption. Even though supported noble metals are the most active (e.g. Pt/TiO 2 [1,2]), the development of low-temperature active and cheap catalysts is still a challenge . Here is presented the use of mesoporous silica SBA-15 supported manganese oxides in low-temperature formaldehyde oxidation. Indeed, manganese oxides are known to be the most effective transition metal oxides for this application. SBA-15 is an ordered mesoporous material with a large surface area (>600m²/g) . A large manganese amount could therefore be impregnated. This study is focused on the influence of the impregnation solvent, the manganese content and the calcination temperature on the morphology of the manganese particles of the final material and also on the catalytic activity in the formaldehyde oxidation.
