Magnesium Oxide play a very important role in any areas of chemistry, physics and material science like other metal oxide, MgO have good reactivity. They have a vast number of structural geometries with an electronics structure that can show metallic, semiconductor and insulator character. It exhibits a rock salt structure. Nanoscale MgO & Cd-MgO powders are generated by quick precipitation technique. Magnesium Nitrate, Cadmium nitrate, Sodium hydroxide & Sodium hydrogen carbonates were used as precursors and PVP as caping agent. The both nanostructure characterized by UV-visible spectroscopy by using tauc plot method. we estimated that the effect of doping on MgO nanoparticles. This indicates that a blue shift in the band gap for both the pure and doped MgO. The doped MgO gives wide band gap as compare to pure MgO. Conductivity also measure of both materials. The MgO nanoparticles are more conductive as compare to Cd-MgO nanoparticles.
MgO (Magnesium Oxide) and Cd-MgO, Polyvinyl Pyrrolidone (PVP).
