A unique method has been developed to synthesize an active heterogeneous oxidation catalyst by the in situ grafting of a 1,4,7-trimethyl-1,4,7- triazacyclononane manganese complex on carboxylic acid-functionalized supports serving dual roles as surface tether and necessary co-catalyst, massively increasing total turnovers as compared to the homogeneous analog.
