Since the innovation of Nano chemistry in past decades number of materials in Nano-scale have been synthesized via, many methods. Nanoparticles have been widely used in various fields, such as
photoelectric, recording materials catalysts, sensors, ceramic materials,
etc., due to their special structures and property. In particular Nano
sized MgO finds application in nano generators, gas sensors, biosensors, solar cells, photo deduction and photo catalyst.In the same
way, Nano sized CaO is extremely stable compounds and finds application in ceramic structures. The present study is aimed at
synthesizing MgO and CaO nanoparticles using simple sol-gel method and reagents and the characterization of MgO and CaO using FT-IR,
X-ray diffraction and scanning electron microscopy (SEM).
KEYWORDS: Nano metal oxides, Sol-gel, FT-IR, XRD, SEM.
