Abstract: Ni nanoparticles (Ni-NPs) have been prepared from

an inorganic precursor by thermal decomposition route. The

prepared precursor Ni(C9H7O2)2(N2H4)2 was characterised by

hydrazine and metal analyses, infrared spectrum and thermo

gravimetry. By the thermal treatment of the precursor under

suitable conditions, Ni-NPs of average size around 23 nm were

obtained. Nanostructured Ni particles thus synthesised were

characterised by X-Ray Diffraction (XRD), High Resolution

Transmission Electron Microscopic (HRTEM), Selected

Area Electron Diffraction (SAED) and Scanning Electron Microscopic

(SEM) techniques.
