Original Paper


Nickel(II) complex, Ni(Brsalph)(NO3) was synthesized and characterized by elemental analyses and Fourier-transformed infrared (FT-IR) spectroscopy. Heating of Ni(Brsalph)(NO3) at 550 °C for 3.5 h have resulted NiO nanoparticles. Fourier-transformed infrared spectrum confirmed the composition of products. The crystalline structures and morphology of NiO nanoparticles were studied by X-ray powder diffraction, scanning electron microscopy and transmission electron microscopy.
