Manganese (III) oxide nanoparticles

Dimanganese trioxide is the oxide that sees as manganese oxidation number +3, the lattice’s shape is cubic.

It shows remarkable application in various fields due to promising properties including paramagnetism, semiconducting nature, high specific capacitance, low cost, abundance and environmentally benign nature.

We at Particular Materials synthesize nano Mn2O3 and we produce and supply dispersions with excellent stability, monodispersity and fully disaggregated state.

Technical Information

The excellent capacitive properties might be attributed to the high and porous surface area and the uniformity of the mesoporous particles, resulting in the large generation of active sites and a fast ionic transport over the surface of the Mn2O3 electrode.

In this way the prepared mesoporous Mn2O3 materials-based electrode exhibits a high specific capacitance with a good cycling stability also after thousands cycles.

Moreover the optical study of Mn2O3 nanoparticles showed that these nanoparticles could be used in solar cells and photocatalysts due to their very high absorbance in the visible range.
