Original Paper


Nickel oxide nanoparticles have been synthesized by thermal treatment of N,N′-(bis(salicylidene)-ethylene-1,2-diamine)Nickel(II); [Ni(salen)]; as precursor which has been synthesized via two methods: [Ni(salen)] were obtained by solid state reaction in absence solvent and co-precipitation reaction in presence of propanol as solvent, respectively. Nickel oxide nanoparticles were characterized by X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy.
