In the present investigation Fe2O3 nanoparticles have been synthesized by chemical route. The characterization of crystallinity has been done using XRD. The morphology and bonding of Fe2O3 NPs were investigated using SEM, Photolumiscence spectroscopy and FTIR. SEM analysis reveals that synthesized Fe2O3 are cubical in shape with a size of 30–40 nm. It was also found that the nanoparticles are highly stable in nature.
