A two-step synthesis strategy has led to a unique layered polyoxometalate-Mn III-metalloporphyrin-based hybrid material. The hybrid solid demonstrates remarkable capability for scavenging of dyes and for heterogeneous selective oxidation of alkylbenzenes with excellent product yields and 100% selectivity.
