In this study, the synthesis of BaCrO4 nanoparticles is performed by the reaction between Ba(NO3)2 and (NH4)2CrO4 in the presence of surfactant. Different analyses such as X-ray diffraction (XRD), Transmission electron microscopy (TEM), Dynamic light scattering (DLS), and Energy Dispersive X-ray analysis (EDAX) are carried out to identify the features of nanoparticles. The tests are conducted in different concentrations of reactants and surfactants, and at the end, the results are compared. Optimum concentration is also measured and reported to achieve smaller nanoparticles. The results indicate that, in the synthesis of BaCrO4 nanoparticles, the best performance belongs to Sodium Citrate.
