Technical Data | MSDS | Structure | Literature and Reviews | Related Products | Resources and Support


Manganese phosphorus trisulfide (MnPS3), CAS number 20642-09-5, is a layered quasi-two-dimensional Heisenberg type antiferromagnet with a Néel temperature TN of 78 K. MnPS3 has a monoclinic structure with the pace group C2/m.

MnPS3 shows a typical antiferromagnetic behaviour with an isotropic trend, while an anisotropic behavior was observed in FePS3 for both perpendicular and parallel polarisations at the given energy range. The magnetic structure of MnPS3 consists of Mn ions coupled antiferromagnetically to their three neighbouring atoms in the layer, and inter-layer coupling of spins is also antiferromagnetic. The direction of the magnetic moment in the ordered state is perpendicular to the ab plane. MnPS3 has Heisenberg-type antiferromagnetic order, while NiPS3 by the anisotropic Heisenberg model and FePS3 is best described by the Ising model. Raman spectroscopy studies show that the Heisenberg-type antiferromagnet MnPS3 can still host magnetic ordering down to bilayers.

Structure of Manganese Phosphorus Trisulfide


MnPS3 monoclinic crystal structure

Manganese phosphorus trisulfide (MnPS3) has a layered structure like black phosphorus (BP) and the different layers are held together by weak van der Waals force. In each layer, the magnetic Mn2+ ions from a honeycomb lattice and each of them is octahedrally coordinated to six S atoms to form its three neighbouring dumbbell-shaped structure [P2S6]4- clusters, with P-P groups occupying the the centres of the hexagons.

Viscoelastic Transfer of 2D Material Using PDMS

Viscoelastic transfer using polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) stamps is one of the methods used for the deterministic placement of 2D materials and the fabrication of van der Waals heterostructures. It relies on the viscoelasticity of PDMS, which behaves as an elastic solid on short time scales, but as a viscous fluid on long time scales.
