In this paper, MnO<sub>2</sub> catalyst were firstly prepared and modified by four kinds of anionic precursors (i.e., NO<sub>3</sub><sup>-</sup>, AC<sup>-</sup>, SO<sub>4</sub><sup>2-</sup> and Cl<sup>-</sup>) through redox precipitation method. After that, bio-treated coking wastewater (BTCW) was prepared and employed as targeted pollutants to investigate the catalytic ozonation performance of prepared-MnO<sub>2</sub> catalyst was investigated and characterized by the removal efficiencies and

Specifically, the effects of specific surface area, crystal structure, valence state of Mn element and lattice oxygen content on catalytic activity of MnO<sub>2</sub> materials were characterized by BET, XRD and XPS, respectively. Results showed that COD of BTCW could be removed 47.39% under MnO<sub>2</sub>-NO<sub>3</sub><sup>-</sup> catalyst with 2 h reaction time, which was much higher than that of MnO<sub>2</sub>-AC<sup>-</sup> (3.94%), MnO<sub>2</sub>-SO<sub>4</sub><sup>2-</sup> (12.42%), MnO<sub>2</sub>-Cl<sup>-</sup> (12.94%) and pure O<sub>3</sub> without catalyst (21.51%), respectively. So, MnO<sub>2</sub>-NO<sub>3</sub><sup>-</sup> presented the highest catalytic performance among these catalysts. The reason may be attributed to a series of better physiochemical properties including the smaller average grain, the larger specific surface area and active groups, more crystal defect and oxygen vacancy, higher relative content of Mn<sup>3+</sup> and adsorbed oxygen (O<sub>ads</sub>) than that of another three catalysts.
