Manganese metal-organic framework (Mn-MOF) containing Mn2+ ions, benzenetricarboxylic acid (BTC) and N,N-dimethylformamid (DMF) was prepared and used as catalyst for oxidation of alkenes such as 1,1-diphenylethylene, trans-stilbene, cyclohexene, norbornene, styrene and cyclooctene to epoxides with 33-92% conversion and 75-100% selectivity and oxidation of alkanes such as fluorene, adamantane, ethylbenzene and diphenylmethane to alcohols or  ketones with tert-butylhydroperoxide (TBHP) with 19-64% conversion and 80-100% selectivity. Study of the catalyst stability and reusability revealed that Mn-MOF behaves heterogeneously in the oxidation reactions
