Abstract :

MgO nano particles have unique optical, thermal and structural properties. In the present work we focus on the Synthesis of MgO nano particles using MgCl2 and NaOH with distilled water as solvent by chemical precipitation method. From the XRD analysis, the particle size of MgO nanoparticle has been calculated as 23.14 nm by using Debye Scherrer’s formula. The presence of functional group in the samples has been analyzed using FT-IR analysis. From the UV analysis the optical band gap of MgO nano particle ranging from 5.59eV. The thermal behavior has been examined using TGA.
