In view of devicing Chromium III Oxide based photothermal absorbers, the quasi-spherical nano-particles of Cr2O3.nH2O have been synthesized by hydrothermal process. An anomalous thermal hysteresis was detected on Cr2O3.nH2O by using the Electron Spin Resonance Spectroscopy at X-band (9.61 GHz) in the temperature range of 292K–420K. Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), was used in addition to shed light of the presence of the anomalous thermal hysteresis on Cr2O3.nH2O nano-particles.
