Structure and application of Manganese Oxide Mn2O3

wallpapers News 2021-12-30
Manganese Oxide Mn2O3 is an oxide with a chemical formula of Mn2O3 and a molecular weight of 157.88. It is a black cubic crystal, insoluble in water, acetic acid, and ammonium chloride solution, but soluble in other inorganic acids. Manganese Oxide Mn2O3 dissolves in cold hydrochloric acid to form a brown solution, turns into a red solution in hot dilute sulfuric acid or concentrated sulfuric acid, decomposes into MnO₂, and manganese nitrate in hot nitric acid, and decomposes into Mn3O4 by heating and releases O₂.
Manganese Oxide Mn2O3 Structure
Manganese Oxide Mn2O3 is unlike many other transition metal oxides in that it does not adopt the corundum (Al2O3) structure. Two forms are generally recognized, α-Mn2O3 and γ-Mn2O3, although a high-pressure form with the CaIrO3 structure has been reported too.
α-Mn2O3 has a cubic bixbyite structure, which is an example of a C-type rare earth sesquioxide. The bixbyite structure is stabilized by the presence of small amounts of Fe3+, pure Mn2O3 has an orthorhombic structure. α-Mn2O3 undergoes antiferromagnetic transition at 80 K. 
γ-Mn2O3 has a structure related to the spinel structure of Mn3O4 where the oxide ions are cubic close-packed. This is similar to the relationship between γ-Fe2O3 and Fe3O4.γ-Mn2O3 is ferrimagnetic with a Néel temperature of 39 K.
