Abstract: Ruthenium dioxide nanoparticles (RuO2) with an average particle size of 54-95 nm are readily synthesized from RuCl3.xH2O via the formation of ruthenium acetylacetone. The particle size of RuO2 nanoparticle increases with increase in calcination time at 800 °C. The ruthenium dioxide nanoparticles have also been capped with DMSO to make them soluble in common organic solvents. These synthesized nanocrystallites have been characterized by FTIR, UV-vis, SEM-EDX, 1H NMR, magnetic measurements and XRD techniques. The XRD pattern demonstrates the crystalline nature of these nanoparticles. The downfield shift of νS=O frequency (∆ν=74 cm-1) in FTIR, as well as SEM-EDX and 1H NMR spectra of the capped RuO2 nanoparticle confirm the capping with DMSO. UV-vis analysis shows that the absorption peak is blue-shifted with decrease of particle size. Magnetic measurements show that these nano oxides have nearly zero magnetic remanence, a linear response of magnetization and finally reach saturation magnetization at low external field in the range 2625-2650 Oe.
