Nickel oxide (NiO) nanoparticles were prepared by Thermal Decomposition method. Thermal decomposition or thermolysis is a chemical decomposition caused by heat. Thermal decomposition was thoroughly studied in order to control the particles size of the as-prepared NiO Nano powders. Transition metal oxides and metals have been researched extensively due to their interesting catalytic, electronic and magnetic properties. It has more applications like electro chromic coatings, plastics, textiles, nanowires, Nano fibers and specific alloy and catalyst applications. It is also used in active optical filters, ceramic structure, p-type transparent conductive films and energy efficient smart windows. The synthesized nickel oxide (NiO) nanoparticles were subjects to various studies like X-ray diffraction (XRD) technique and Fourier Transfer Infrared spectroscopy (FTIR).
