ABSTRACT


Magnesium oxide nanoparticles (MgONPs) have been synthesised by mixing aqueous solutions
of magnesium sulphate and sodium hydroxide. The resulting precipitate of magnesium hydroxide
was heated strongly to get dry precipitate. Then it was heated strongly at 300 C for hours. The
resulted magnesium oxide nanoparticles were characterized by SEM and EDAX. The MgONPs
appeared in the form of plates and clusters. The size was in the range of 128 to 187 nm.


Keywords: synthesis of magnesium oxide nanoparticles, plates and clusters, SEM and EDAX
