Abstract

The production of (Cr2O3)0.6 (CdO)0.4 nanoparticles has been attained by a novel heat calcination temperature.  The structural, morphological, and elemental composition features of the produced nanoparticles have been charactered using various techniques, including X-ray diffraction (XRD), energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDX), and field emission scanning microscopy (FESEM). The XRD results assessment revealed that, following calcination, nanoparticle growth followed, implying face-centred cubic (FCC) of (Cr2O3)0.6 (CdO)0.4 nanoparticles. With increasing calcination temperature, crystalline size has increased, and the mean grain size studied by FESEM micrographs, suggested a corresponding increasing trend.  The presence of Cr, Cd, and O in these novel materials being confirmed by the results of EDX analyses.
