In this research nanoparticles of Nickel (II) Chloride were synthesized and characterized using fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) spectra. Nanoparticles of Nickel (II) Chloride were prepared by using of ball mill device. A ball mill is one kind of grinding machine, and it is a device in which media balls and solid materials (the materials to be ground) are placed in a container. In the research Nickel (II) Chloride compound was milled for 10 h at 250 rpm in a hardened stainless steel medium. The resulting nanoparticles were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The SEM imaging technique was applied for the observation of grain sizes and the morphology of the nanoparticles. The Debye-Scherrer formula was used to confirm the grain sizes determined by the SEM slides. XRD results of nanoparticles showed that the crystallite size of reaching 59 mm after 10 h at 250 RPM. Thermal behavior of nanoparticles was considered by using of DTA /TGA thermal analysis device. TGA analysis reveals that the synthesized Nickel (II) Chloride nanoparticle was thermally stable up to 900°C.
