Single-crystal Mn3O4 nanorods with tetragonal structure have been successfully prepared by a chemical reaction route. Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and high-resolution TEM studies prove that the single-crystal Mn3O4 nanorod is smooth and straight, and that the geometrical shape is structurally perfect. We investigated the electronic characteristics of Mn3O4 nanorods by various spectral evaluations. The present study confirms that the hybridization between oxygen 2p and manganese 3d orbits plays an important role when considering electronic structures of Mn3O4 nanorods. © 2006 American Institute of Physics.
