Keywords: NiO NPS, precipitation method, XRD, VSM


Nickel oxide nanoparticles (NiO NPS) have been prepared via chemical precipitation method. In this work, we are studying about the structural, morphological, and magnetic properties. The NiO NPS are characterized by different ways like XRD, SEM/EDX, FTIR, Antibacterial and VSM analysis. XRD indicates that the FCC structure of NiO NPS, with the crystallite size from 17.89 nm to 52.37 nm. The spherical shape was observed in SEM image. The basic composition of NiO NPS is determined by using the EDX. FTIR gives two wide peaks appeared at 421and 481 cm−1 due to Ni–O stretching vibration clearly indicates the formation of NiO at 600oC and 800oC. The VSM results demonstrate that the NiO NPS showing weak ferromagnetic behavior at 600 oC and 800 oC temperature.
