Nickel oxide nano crystallites were synthesized using Nickel [II] Chloride and Sodium hydroxide. The Thermo Gravimetric and Differential Thermo gravimetric (TGA/DTA) analysis were done to study the thermal behavior of the as synthesized sample Ni(OH)2. The peak at 290°C in DTA may be related to the decomposition of Ni(OH)2 into NiO. The structural, optical properties, morphology and composition of NiO nano particles (NPs) were studied by various techniques such as XRD, FTIR, UV-Vis, PL, FESEM
