    SnO powder with a specific surface area of 2 m<sup>2</sup>/g has been prepared by microwave-assisted hydrothermal processing of an ammoniacal Sn<inf>6</inf>O<inf>4</inf>(OH)<inf>4</inf> suspension. We have examined the effect of pressure rise rate in a reaction mixture on the surface morphology and photocatalytic activity of SnO. Raising the pressure has been shown to reduce the SnO synthesis time, without influencing the surface morphology of SnO or its photocatalytic activity for methyl orange photodegradation.
