Nanoparticles of Mg(OH) 2 : Synthesis and Application to Paper Conservation

Giorgi, Rodorico; Bozzi, Claudio; Dei, Luigi; Gabbiani, Chiara; Ninham, Barry; Baglioni, Piero


We report an investigation on the effects of counterions of magnesium salts on the homogeneous phase precipitation reaction to yield nanoparticles. The results provide new parameters to guide the control of the size, monodispersity, crystallinity, and morphology of Mg(OH)2 nanoparticles. Evidence emerged that magnesium counterions affect the size of crystallites. The particle size increases from about 50 to 200 nm and follows the Hofmeister anion series: sulfate < chloride < nitrate <...[Show more]
