Description and Specification of Magnesium Oxide Nanoparticles

Magnesium oxide nanoparticles (MgO nanoparticles), often called Magnesium Oxide nanopowder, are fine powder comprising 5 – 100 nanometers (nm) size particles. It has a high surface area. It is a solid form mineral with antimicrobial properties. The Magnesium Oxide nanopowder has gram-positive, gram-negative, and endospore-forming bacteria. It is one of the rare metals that exhibit the minimum or no harm-causing agents to the human body. Due to this, it is famous for biomedical use. MgO nanoparticles synthesized by magnesium oxide or magnesia. It is a white hygroscopic mineral that exists naturally as periclase. The source of MgO is magnesium. It is odourless and non-toxic. MgO nanoparticles are a promising antibacterial agent as they show high resistance to harsh processing
conditions. The product has a high melting point, purity, and hardness. The product is developed using a mechanical milling process to produce high-quality nanopowder. Moreover, the method is efficient and eco-friendly.

Synthesis of Magnesium Oxide nanoparticles

The synthesis of the nanoparticles involves applying a high-energy mechanical milling process on the oxidized magnesium at constant intervals. The process reduces the initial temperature of the carbothermic reduction reaction. It forms magnesia crystallites reduced to a nano-metric scale.
The Magnesium oxide nanopowder can also be developed using green synthesis and hydroxide precipitation process. It is distinguished by X-ray powder diffraction and scanning electron microscopes. It follows by the thermal decomposition of the hydroxide.

Applications of Magnesium oxide Nanoparticles

It substitutes a high-temperature dehydrating agent, convenient for producing high-grade ceramic material, silicon steel sheets, electronic industry material, adhesive, and additives in the chemical raw material. It uses an electric insulating material for producing crucible, smelter, insulated conduit and electrode sheet, magnetic device filler, electrode bar, high-frequency magnetic-rod antenna, insulating material filler, and several carriers used in the radio industry.
It is a desirable fire retardant for chemical fiber and plastics trades. It is also beneficial as refractory fiber and refractory material, magnetite-chrome brick, filler for refractory coating, refractory and insulating instrument. Moreover, it is suitable for electricity, cable, optical material, steel-smelting furnaces, other high-temperature furnaces, heating material, and ceramic base plates. It can also use as a fuel additive, cleaner, anti-static agent, and corrosion inhibitor.
The product has applications in Automobiles and airplanes where it helps develop parts of the machinery. It is used in medical devices, which enables it to display antimicrobial responses without harming host cells. Moreover, it is preferable for protective coatings, nano-wires, plastics, nano-fibers, Hydrogen storage, and Textiles.

How to Use Magnesium Oxide Nanoparticles?

Magnesium Oxide Nanoparticles Dispersion Guide
The researchers can use water, ethanol, mineral oil, or other organic solvents to disperse the product. Then take a desirable amount of the nanoparticles and the solvent depending upon the quality of the nanoparticles. Mix the solvent and the nanopowder slowly and do not use swift motions for mixing. Preferably Use a sonic probe to disperse the solution.

Safety Measures

Although the Magnesium Oxide nanopowder is not toxic, it may irritate when it encounters the human body. Researchers should always use personal protective equipment (PPE) to protect themselves from accidents. Use chemical-resistant goggles, gloves, face shields, and masks while handling the product.

If the product encounters with following –
Eyes: Thoroughly rinse eyes with clean water. Ensure that your hands are clean before splashing water in your eyes.

Respiratory system:

1. Try breathing out briskly.
2. Exit to a place with proper ventilation.
3. If the individual has a problem breathing, provide artificial (mouth to mouth) respiration.
4. If the individual has difficulty in breathing, give oxygen.


1. The product does not irritate. However, if the researcher experiences irritation, consult a doctor. If irritation persists, immediately visit the hospital.
