In this paper, the first bio-nano colloid including manganese oxide nanoparticles and copper nanocomplex in the presence of as one unwanted plant was prepared (MnO/CuL bio-nanocolloid). As-prepared bio nanocolloid was analysed completely by different techniques such as FT-IR, ICP-AES, SEM, EDX, TEM and elemental analysis to have the size, structure, morphology and elements in this compound. This bio-nanocolloid showed high catalytic activity towards green oxidation reactions of alcohols using hydrogen peroxide under solvent free conditions. The longevity, easy and practical recoverability of the solid catalyst was also confirmed for six times. The natural starting material for a long-term stability catalyst preparation, using ideal oxidant (HO), solventless and easy work up show the great potential in scalability for actual industries applications.
