Summary of "Manganese oxide nanocomposite fabricated by a simple solid-state reaction and its ultraviolet photoresponse property."

We present a facile synthesis of manganese oxide (MnO(2)) nanocomposite with ultraviolet (UV) photosensitive characteristic by a solid-state reaction based on the reduction of potassium permanganate (KMnO(4)) by aniline, which provides a new family and more selectivity for UV photosensitive nanomaterials in the future.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Manganese poisoning is associated with chronic inhalation of manganese particles by individuals who work with manganese ore. Clinical features include CONFUSION; HALLUCINATIONS; and an extrapyramidal syndrome (PARKINSON DISEASE, SECONDARY) that includes rigidity; DYSTONIA; retropulsion; and TREMOR. (Adams, Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1213)

Inorganic chemicals that contain manganese as an integral part of the molecule.

The quality or state of being wettable or the degree to which something can be wet. This is also the ability of any solid surface to be wetted when in contact with a liquid whose surface tension is reduced so that the liquid spreads over the surface of the solid.

A salt produced by the reaction of zinc oxide with acetic acid and used as an astringent, styptic, and emetic.

Lasers which use a solid, as opposed to a liquid or gas, as the lasing medium. Common materials used are crystals, such as YAG (YTTRIUM aluminum garnet); alexandrite; and CORUNDUM, doped with a rare earth element such as a NEODYMIUM; ERBIUM; or HOLMIUM. The output is sometimes additionally modified by addition of non-linear optical materials such as potassium titanyl phosphate crystal, which for example is used with neodymium YAG lasers to convert the output light to the visible range.
