    Abstract: A simple hydrothermal method was developed for the synthesis ofpyrolosite β-MnO2 nanorods, using potassium permanganate (KMnO4), manganese sulfate (MnSO4.H2O) and oxalic acid (H2C2O4). The effects of the reaction time, the hydrothermal temperature and the amount of H2C2O4 on the structure and the morphology of the final products were studied. The β... Show More
