The monoaminotrinitro iron phthalocyanine (FeMATNPc) is used to connect with isonicotinic acid (INA) for amide bonding and axial coordination to synthetic a unique catalyst FeMATNPc-INA, which is loaded in polyacrylonitrile (PAN) nanofibers by electrospinning. The introduction of INA destroys the π-π conjugated stack structure in phthalocyanine molecules and exposes more active sites. The FeMATNPc-INA structure is characterized by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and UV-visible absorption spectrum, and the FeMATNPc-INA/PAN structure is characterized by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy and X-ray diffraction. The FeMATNPc-INA/PAN can effectively activate peroxymonosulfate (PMS) to eliminate carbamazepine (CBZ) within 40 minutes (PMS 1.5 mmol/L) in the dark. The effects of catalyst dosage, PMS concentration, pH and inorganic anion on the degradation of CBZ are investigated. It has been confirmed by electron paramagnetic resonance, gas chromatography–mass spectroscopy and free radical capture experiments that the catalytic system is degraded by OH, SO4•− and Fe (IV) = O are the major active species, the singlet oxygen (1O2) is the secondary active species. The degradation process of CBZ is analyzed by ultra-high performance liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry and the aromatic compounds have been degraded to small molecular acids.
