Mn3O4 nanoparticles were synthesized via an ionic liquid (IL) assisted process at room temperature, which is rather difficult to achieve by other techniques. The synthesized product was characterized by powder X-ray diffraction (XRD), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) spectroscopy, thermal gravimetry (TG), and vibrating sample magnetometry (VSM). The prepared material showed a high purity, while crystallite size and particle size agree well with each other, 17 +/- 2 and 19 +/- 3 nm, respectively, revealing nearly single crystalline character of nanoparticles. The product contains 4 wt% of adsorbed water and ionic liquid. This method provides a facile, one-step, and low-cost route for the synthesis of nanostructures of metal oxides. In addition, [BMIM]BF4 could be collected and reused for subsequent reactions.
