Abstract—Manganese octahedral molecular sieve or cryptomelane (K-OMS2) was synthesized by hydrothermal method and tested as catalytic oxidation of arsenite at different temperatures. The synthesized K-OMS2 was characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), Point of zero charge (pHpzc), and Brunauer Emmett Teller (BET). The results showed that K-OMS2 has cryptomelane crystalline structure, pHpzc ≈ 5, and high surface area of 134.76 m2g-1. The results showed that the catalytic oxidation could completely oxidize arsenite to arsenate and the oxidation rate increased as temperature increased in the range of temperature investigated (303 – 333 K). The oxidation kinetic of arsenite fitted well with the pseudo-second-order kinetic model. The oxidation process occurred spontaneously (−ΔG°), in an endothermic nature (+ΔH°), and with increased randomness (+ΔS°). The overall result suggested the potential use of K-OMS2 as a catalytic for the oxidation of arsenite.

Index Terms—Arsenic, oxidation, manganese oxide octahedral molecular sieves, K-OMS2.
