Manganese oxide forms prepared by different methods differ by their compositions, phase ratios in polyphase samples, and crystallite sizes (XRD and TEM characterization). Among the phases, tunnel-structured β-MnO2 (pyrolusite), α-MnO2 (cryptomelane), ε-MnO2 (akhtenskite), and β-Mn2O3 (bixbyite) have been identified. Water vapor sorption isotherms showed substantial differences in the affinities of water molecules to oxide surfaces of the manganese oxide forms under study. The parameters of the BET equation and pore size distribution curves have been calculated. The manganese oxide forms have mesoporous structures characterized by uniform and non-uniform pore sizes as well as by moderate hydrophilic behavior. View Full-Text
