Abstract

Nano- and micro-architectural manganese oxide produced by microorganisms catalyses the selective monobromination of hydrocarbons in excellent yield under irradiation of fluorescent room light. The knowledge gained from investigating natural materials will lead to unprecedented catalyst designing toward efficient organic reactions.
