Abstract

Problem statement: Barium Sulfate (BaSO4) is suitable for many applications because of its whiteness, inertness and high specific gravity. Approach: Nanoparticles of barium sulphate (BaSO4) have been synthesized from barium nitrate by precipitation method in the presence of water soluble organic polycarboxylic polymer as a modifying agent. Transmission electron microscopy, Scanning electron microscopy, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy and X-ray powder diffractometry were used to characterize the products as well as laser grainmeter. Results: The results indicate that spherical BaSO4 nanoparticles are obtained with poor crystalline and diameters ranging from 30-35 nm. Conclusion: The organic polycarboxylate shows as good modifier agent. So, this method can be employed to synthesize higher yield of BaSO4 nanoparticles.
