Researchers are constantly exploring ways to customize nanoparticles to suit various applications across multiple domains such as cosmetics, optical components, biology, physics, chemistry, pharmaceutical drug manufacture, polymer science, toxicology, and mechanical engineering.
This article discusses the properties and applications of manganese oxide nanoparticles. Manganese is a Block D, Period 4 element, while oxygen is a Block P, Period 2 element.
The morphology of manganese oxide nanoparticles is high surface area, and they appear in a solid green powder form. They are graded as an irritant and can cause skin, eyes and breathing irritations.
The chemical properties of manganese oxide nanoparticles are outlined in the following table.
||Manganese [Ar] 3d54s2
