Abstract

Magnesium hydroxide is an important material with high decomposition temperature. It is the important precursor for magnesium oxide. In the present study, nanoparticles of magnesium hydroxide were prepared from bittern. Bittern is the waste liquid formed during the production of salt. Since it is rich in magnesium, magnesium hydroxide nanoparticles can be prepared. The nanoparticles were characterized by SEM, EDS and TG-DTA.

Keywords

Bittern magnesium hydroxide nanoparticles chemical precipitation process precipitator.
