    Tin(II) oxide nanopowder has been prepared through microwave processing of an ammoniacal Sn6O4(OH)4 suspension, and the effect of synthesis duration on the surface morphology, acid-base properties, and photocatalytic activity of the SnO has been examined. The results demonstrate that the surface morphology plays a key role in determining the photocatalytic activity of powder SnO for methyl orange photo-degradation.
