	%X Potassium monopersulfate has been decomposed in
aqueous solution in the presence of Co(II). The effect of the main
operating variables has been assessed. Minimum variations in pH
exert a considerable influence on the process kinetics. Thus, when no
pH adjustment is considered, the actual effect of variables like initial
monopersulfate and/or catalyst concentration may be hindered. As
expected, temperature enhances the monopersulfate decomposition
rate by following the Arrhenius law. The activation energy in the
proximity of 85 kJ/mol has been obtained. Amongst the different
solids tested in the monopersulfate decomposition, only the
perovskite LaTi0.15Cu0.85O3 has shown a significant catalytic activity.
