Abstract: A simple cost effective preparation of Magnesium oxide nanoparticles in nanotube morphology is reported using Chemical co-precipitation method. As prepared magnesium oxide nanoparticles were characterized using UV-visible spectroscopy, X-ray Diffraction, Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscope and Energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy. As prepared magnesium oxide nanoparticles were found in nanotube morphology whose inner and outer diameter were 31 nm and 78 nm. The band gap of as prepared nanotubes were found to be 5.37eV with maximum absorbance at 200 nm.
Keywords: Chemical Co-Precipitation Method, Magnesium Oxide Nanoparticles, Nanotube Morphology.
Scope of the Article: Automated software design and synthesis
