Abstract
Gamma irradiation technique has been applied to produce non-stoichiometric nickel oxide nanoparticles (of approximately 23 nm) from gels prepared at pH about 8.2. Characterization techniques so far discussed in this investigation revealed that the sol product prepared before irradiation corresponded to Ni(OH)2, which was transformed under gamma irradiation to NiO. The present investigation has proven the efficiency of gamma rays in inducing changes in structure and morphology of the sols prepared before irradiation. The synthesised NiO nanoparticle was found to be an efficient photocatalyst for degradation of acid red G under UV light irradiation. And, finally the radiolytic mechanism production of NiO nanoparticles in aerated solutions is suggested according to the experimental result.
