Abstract

Octahedral monodisperse α-MnS and MnO nanoparticles have been synthesized by decomposing manganese oleate and elemental sulfur in octadecene at high (250-320 °C) temperature. The chemical composition of the obtained NPs depends on the Mn:S ratio in an unexpected way. Pure α-MnS NP samples are obtained when S:Mn ∼ 2:1, whereas pure MnO NPs require S:Mn ≤ 0.6. Variation of several parameters (concentration of sulfur, heating rate and aging temperature and time) resulted in a α-MnS NP size interval of 11-14 (from Mn monooleate) and 18-30 nm (from Mn dioleate). For MnO NPs only, size control is also possible by addition of free oleic acid (14-24 nm). Analysis of TEM tilting experiments and electron diffraction shows that both α-MnS and MnO nanoparticles have octahedral shape and spontaneously form ordered arrays with strong texture in the {111} direction. Measurement of the magnetic properties showed that α-MnS nanoparticles consist of an antiferromagnetic core and a ferromagnetic-like shell that are exchange coupled below the blocking temperature of the shell (23 K for 29 nm α-MnS NP).
