Abstract

Calcium oxide (CaO) nanoparticles have been synthesized by two step thermal decomposition method under ambient temperature. Structural analysis was carried out by powder X-ray diffraction method and the crystallite size of CaO nanoparticles was calculated using Scherrer formula. Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) analysis has been carried to identify the functional groups present in the synthesized specimen. Optical absorption studies reveal very low absorption in the entire visible region. The surface analysis of the synthesized particles was analysed using scanning electron microscope (SEM).
