Metal-based catalysis has notably contributed to the chemical community mainly in environmental science. Various cobalt and iron based catalysts have shown great potential for powerful reactive species. However, the application of cobalt and iron based perovskite for aqueous phase oxidation still remains limited. In this study, Sr2FeCoO6 double perovskite oxide was synthesized and used for the first time as an effective heterogeneous magnetic catalyst for peroxymonosulfate activation to produce free reactive radicals. Bisphenol F (BPF), a new emergent compound, was used as a target contaminant to evaluate the performance of this combination.
