Hydrothermal growth of two-dimensional SrMnO3

Research output: Contribution to conferencePoster


Nanosheets of the four-layered, hexagonal perovskite 4H-SrMnO3, an end-member in a class of magnetoresistive materials, have been synthesized via a hydrothermal method. MnO2 nanosheets were used as the precursor to act as the Mn source which diverges from the Mn-salt precursors commonly seen. These hydrothermal reactions were carried out over a range of times and temperatures with relatively low concentrations of NaOH. Identification and characterization were accomplished through powder X-ray diffraction, transmission electron microscopy, and atomic force microscopy. The resulting nanosheets were found to possess lateral dimensions ranging from several hundred nanometers to a few microns. During the course of these reactions, the morphology was found to be dependent on the Mn:Sr ratio.
