Anisotropic nanostructures of magnesium oxalate dihydrate were synthesized using cationic surfactant based microemulsion method. The cationic surfactant plays an important role in forming the anisotropic structures. The oxalate nanostructures acts as an excellent precursor for the synthesis of fine magnesium oxide nanoparticles (~10 nm). Both the precursor and the oxide were characterized by using PXRD, IR, surface area and HRTEM. The surface area of these surfactant free oxide nanoparticles… CONTINUE READING
