The present work focuses on the synthesis of high surface area NiO nanoparticles through thermal decomposition of [Ni(binol)(bpy)]∙CH3OH complex as a new precursor. [Ni(binol)(bpy)]∙CH3OH (where binol = racemic-1,1′-bi-2-naphtholate and bpy = 2,2′-bipyridine) was synthesized from reaction of NiCl2(bpy) with rac-Na2(binol). The complex was characterized by elemental analysis and spectroscopy techniques of IR, UV-Vis, mass, 1H and 13C NMR. The results revealed that [Ni(binol)(bpy)]∙CH3OH was a paramagnetic tetrahedral complex. The physicochemical properties of the nanoparticles were characterized by various analysis techniques such as X-ray diffraction (XRD), Fourier transform infrared (FTIR), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDX), and BET specific surface area. The used synthetic rout is facile and economic that makes it suitable for large scale production of pure nickel oxide nanoparticles.
