Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Bridged polysilsesquioxane possessing dimanganese complex moiety, a model complex for catalase, exhibited catalytic activity for the hydrogen peroxide decomposition reaction without any deactivation. The catalytic activity was mostly retained, even after 24-h acid treatment at 80 °C, improving thermal stability after immobilization.
