The intertwined nanopetal assembly of Mg(OH)(2) powder was synthesized in the present work by a very simple, inexpensive, green chemical route without using any catalysts and templates. The synthesized powder was thoroughly investigated by X-ray diffraction, BET and BJH measurements, Fourier transformed infrared spectroscopy, field emission scanning electron microscopy, energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy, thermo-gravimetric and differential thermal analysis techniques. The results showed that phase pure, oxygen rich Mg(OH)(2) powder of 2.7-6.16 nm crystallite size, similar to 7 nm pore size, and similar to 93.76 m(2) gm(-1) surface area was obtained. Finally, the possible growth mechanism of intertwined nanopetal assembly was discussed for the Mg(OH)(2) powders. (c) 2014 Elsevier Ltd and Techna Group S.r.l. All rights reserved.
