Abstract
On Burning the fuel, rice husk to get energy, leads to the stuff called rice husk ash (RHA ) . RHA is an abundant agricultural by product. It's highly rich in silica and may be made into economically viable material which might be used for wide production of silica gels and powders. The current work deals with the assembly of silica. Acid washing before extraction resulted in silica with a lower concentration of minerals. Synthesis was done by precipitation using different acids namely, hydroxide which yielded nanosilica . The effect of various acids on different size and degree of agglomeration of the silica particles were studied, and therefore the formed silica is then sorted out for various uses. This process is kind of inexpensive, sustainable, environment friendly and also suitable for giant scale production.
