Abstract

Nanostructured MgO powders have been synthesized using chemical methods. Ammonium oxalate and Magnesium sulphate were used as the precursor materials. The weight ratios of the raw materials (ammonium oxalate/Magnesium sulphate) were 0.9, 1, 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, and 1.4. As a result of chemical reaction (between them), Magnesium oxalate was synthesized. Produced samples were analyzed by XRD and SEM. The results show that the best ratio (for ammonium oxalate/Magnesium sulphate) is 1.4. Produced Magnesium oxalate powder was heated at 450 and 550 degrees C. The final product was MgO nanopowder. XRD studies indicate that the highest ratio of MgO was observed in the specimen heated at 450 degrees C.
