Abstract: Temperature-programmed thermal decomposition of γ- and α-manganese oxyhydroxide has been studied between 20 and 670°C under vacuum and under a low pressure (10 Torr) of oxygen. Solid products at various temperatures have been analyzed by X-ray diffractometry. Under vacuum γ-MnOOH decomposed below 400°C to a mixture of Mn5O8, α-Mn3O4, and water according to the reaction scheme: 8MnOOH → Mn5O8 + Mn3O4 + 4H2O. Above this temperature Mn5O8 was converted to α-Mn3O4 as a result of oxygen removal. The vacuum dehydration at 250°C of oxyhydroxide rich in α-MnOOH led to the formation of a new modification of Mn2O3 isostructural with corundum (α-Al2O3). In oxygen both oxyhydroxides decomposed to β-MnO2. γ-MnOOH transformed directly to β-MnO2 while α-MnOOH appeared to transform via corundum-phase Mn2O3 as an intermediate.
