Title: Hydrothermal synthesis of nanostructured SnO particles through crystal growth in the presence of gelatin

Crystalline SnO particles were obtained from Sn{sub 6}O{sub 4}(OH){sub 4} by the hydrothermal treatment in aqueous solutions containing gelatin at 150 °C for 24 h, where the morphologies of the SnO products changed from blocks to layered disks, stacked plates and unshaped aggregates with increasing amount of gelatin in the solutions. Such morphological changes of SnO particles were thought to be attributed to the suppression of the growth of SnO crystals by the adsorbed gelatin. - Graphical abstract: Nanostructured SnO particles were obtained from Sn{sub 6}O{sub 4}(OH){sub 4} by the hydrothermal treatment in gelatin solutions. - Highlights: • SnO particles were prepared from Sn{sub 6}O{sub 4}(OH){sub 4} by the hydrothermal treatment. • The adsorption of gelatin suppressed the growth of SnO crystals. • The shape of SnO particles depends on the amount of gelatin. • Blocks, disks, stacked plates and unshaped aggregates were obtained.
