Synthesis of Mn3O4 Nanoparticles with Controlled Morphology Using Ionic Liquid

Author(s): Jafar Akbari, Akbar Heydari.


Mn3O4 Nanoparticles were synthesized from Mn(OAc)2 by hydrothermal method in water in the presence and absence of ionic liquids (ILs) as template for controlling the size and the shape of nanoparticles. In order to produce nanoparticles which are more similar and uniform in distribution and morphology, ionic liquids have been used. The ionic liquid [BMIm][Cl] caused more uniform nanoparticles as well as small nanoparticles. Structural characterizations revealed that the synthesized nanoparticles were of tetragonal Mn3O4 structure and that they were uniform in the presence of ionic liquid.
