Aluminium nanoparticles (Al NPs) have been synthesized using electrochemical method. The synthesis was conducted by electrolysis of aluminium metal in a sodium citrate solution as an electrolyte solution. Formation of Al NPs was investigated on the variation of potential (5-50 V), concentration of electrolyte solution (0.02-0.42 M), and electrolysis time (15-75 minutes). The obtained product was characterized by X-ray Diffraction (XRD), Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM), Energy Dispersive X-Ray (EDX), and UV-Vis Spectrophotometer. XRD pattern indicate that the obtained product was aluminium nanoparticles. The result show that the size of Al NPs were 56-63 nm with the Al compositions of 7.08%. The optimum condition was reached at 40 V with 0.18 M sodium citrate solution during 45 minutes electrolysis process. The plasmon band peak was found at 234 nm. In this condition Al Nps is more stable.
