ε-MnO effectively activates peroxymonosulfate (PMS) for the efficient degradation of emerging pollutants. ε-MnO was synthesized by a facile thermal-treatment method and its long-term stability and efficiency for the elimination of emerging pollutants, including sulfamethoxazole (SMX), sulfachloropyridazine (SCP), sulfamethazine (SMT), ciprofloxacin (CIP), and azithromycin (AZI), from aqueous media were evaluated. ε-MnO was found to activate PMS more efficiently than α-MnO, β-MnO, or δ-MnO, owing to its high - OH-group content, unique structure, and high surface area.
