Magnesium hydroxide (Mg(OH)2) nanoparticles were synthesized by chemical precipitation synthesis method. The influence of the nano-sized Mg(OH)2 on the structural modification was evaluated. The formation of Mg(OH)2 crystals were evaluated by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) and thermogravimetric analysis (TGA). The particle size and morphology of Mg(OH)2was confirmed by high resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM). The crystalline structure of nanoparticles was characterized by fast Fourier transform (FFT) and X-Ray diffraction (XRD), like analytical tools.
