Abstract:
In the present investigation has purely narrowed on the synthesis and characterization of lanthanum oxide nanoparticles by the method of Co-precipitation. The prepared lanthanum oxide powder was synthesized from the raw material of lanthanum nitrate and sodium hydroxide. This study mainly focused on the reducing property of prepared lanthanum oxide nanoparticles thereby reducing the hydroxyl radicals. It was experimentally demonstrated by the following techniques such as Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy and X-ray diffraction. The XRD analysis clearly revealed that the intensified hexagonal “Lanthania” is formed and the nanoparticles are poly-crystalline in nature. The morphological studies and the size of the prepared nanoparticles can be examined through the Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscopy and the percentage composition of metal present in the prepared lanthanum oxide nanoparticles can be exactly assured from the Energy Dispersive X-ray Analysis and elemental mapping.
