Catalase-like activity of the TEMPO-activated (TEMPO: 2,2,6,6-tetramethyl- 1-piperidinyloxyl) manganese(II) complex Mn(IndH)Cl2•CH 3OH (IndH: 1,3-bis[(2'-pyridylimino)isoindoline] is reported. The title compound was a suitable catalyst for the disproportionation of H 2O2 into water and dioxygen under ambient conditions. Kinetic measurements resulted in the third-order rate equation d[O 2]/dt = k[H2O2][Mn(IndH)Cl2• CH3OH][TEMPO].
