Synthesis and characterization studies of pure mg and cu doped mgO nanoparticles by co-precipitation method
The pureMgO and Cu doped MgO nanoparticles were synthesized by Co - Precipitation method. The synthesized samples are characterized by X-ray diffraction, Scanning Electron Microscope, Fourier transform infrared spectrometer&UV-Vis spectrometer. The XRD studies of the sample confirmed the formation of cubic andorthorhombic structure.The particle size and lattice constants were analysed. The XRD patterns show that the average particle size is in the range of 6nm for MgOand Cu doped MgO Nanoparticles was found to increase as 8 nm respectively. The presence of functional groups of thepure& Cu doped Magnesium Oxide nanoparticles were confirmed by FTIR analysis.SEM results show both the presence of cubic and agglomeration of the smaller particles.A broad absorbance band from UV-Vis spectra is located at around 264 nm and 260 nm. This is the simple synthesis method and they are used in optical and gas sensor applications, telecommunication cables, conductor wires, connector wires and automotive switches.
