Annealing effect on nickel oxide nanoparticles synthesized by sol-gel method

Title variants
Languages of publication
NiO nanoparticles were synthesized by Sol-Gel method and the synthesized nanoparticles were annealed at different temperatures. The powders were investigated with x-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy and TGA. The structural characterization was carried out by x-ray diffraction which confirms the polycrystalline nature of the films with a cubic structure. SEM analysis of the films enabled the conclusion that the prepared films are uniform, rough, large crystals and agglomeration of particles were observed. The thermal stability of the sample was examined by TGA analysis which showed NiO nanoparticles formed between 130-720 C.
