Title: Solid state microwave synthesis of highly crystalline ordered mesoporous hausmannite Mn 3 O 4 films


Microwave calcination of ordered micelle templated manganese carbonate films leads to highly crystalline, ordered mesoporous manganese oxide, while similar temperatures in a furnace lead to disordered, amorphous manganese oxide.
