Metals are able to form a large number of oxides. These metal oxides play an important role in many areas of chemistry, physics and material science. An important metal oxide known as magnesium oxide (MgO) having good reactivity is widely used in producing electronics, catalyst, ceramics, oil, paint etc. Magnesium oxide Nano-particle is non-toxic and need a small amount, so it is suitable for the development of flame-retardant fiber additives. In addition, nano magnesium oxide added in fuel can inhibit corrosion. In this communication Magnesium oxide nanoparticles were successfully synthesized by co-precipitation technique at room temperature using magnesium nitrate and sodium hydroxide as a precursor. The morphological investigation of MgO nanoparticles was done by various analytical techniques Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM-EDX) for morphological studies. X-ray Diffraction (XRD) indicates the crystallinity and crystal size of MgO nanoparticle. Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy is used for analysing the functional groups of the sample.
