Green synthesis approach to synthesize magnesium hydroxide (MgHNPs) and magnesium oxide (MgONPs) nanoparticles using Olea europea leaf aqueous extract in one-pot reaction. The synthesized magnesium hydroxide and oxide nanoparticles were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR), Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS).

Keywords: Green synthesis, Magnesium hydroxidenanoparticles, Magnesium oxide nanoparticles, Olea europea leaf extract.

The presenter Alaa Y. Ghidan, the PhD Student at the Jordan University, and she has two publications about the same field of nanotechnology, synthesis as an eco-friendly method.
