Title: Birnessite-Type MnO 2 Nanosheets with Layered Structures Under High Pressure: Elimination of Crystalline Stacking Faults and Oriented Laminar Assembly

Abstract

Squeezing out crystalline stacking faults: Birnessite-type δ-phase MnO2 microflowers containing interconnected ultrathin nanosheets are synthesized through a microwave-assisted hydrothermal process and exhibit a layered crystalline structure with significant stacking faults. Compressing these MnO2 nanosheets in a diamond anvil cell with high pressure up to tens of GPa effectively eliminates the crystalline stacking faults.
