Nanoparticles in the form Zn(1-x)MnxO (0.00≤x≤0.06) synthesized using coprecipitation method. Basic materials used Zn(CH3COO)2·2H2O, Mn(CH3COO)2·4H2O, HCl, and NH4OH. The nature of the structure, morphology and magnetic nanoparticles Zn(1- x)MnxO (0.00≤x≤0.06) were characterized using X-ray Diffraction (XRD), Electron Diffraction (ED), Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM), Dispersive X-ray (EDX), Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) and vibrating sample magnetometer (VSM). The nature of the structure showed that the nanoparticles Zn(1-x)MnxO (0.00≤x≤0.06) showed a single phase hexagonal wurtzite structure. Based on the XRD data analysis supported by SEM and TEM, the nanoparticles Zn(1-x)MnxO (0.00≤x≤0.06) nanometer size. EDX-based elemental composition analysis showed the presence of small amounts of Mn. Functionalgroups and chemical interactions within the sample Zn(1-x)MnxO (0.00≤x≤0.06) also determined from a variety of data using FTIR absorption peak. Magnetic characterization showed that the nanoparticle samples Zn(1-x)MnxO (0.00≤x≤0.06) as paramagnetic behavior. The interesting thing happened on the sample Zn(1-x)MnxO x = 0.01 in the secondary phase ZnMnO4. Results from a series of investigations are presented in this article.
