Nanotechnology is an important field of modern research and manipulation of Nanoparticles (matter with at least one dimension sized from 1 to 100 nanometers).This paper consists of synthesis of Nano adsorbent (Alumina) and its characterization. Nano Alumina can be used as catalysts , adsorbents and also wear resistant coating. A variety of preparation techniques have been reported for the synthesis of alumina nanoparticle; Deionized water using Laser ablation technique, using agarose as Template , Solvo thermal Method, Using Sol Gel method. Out of all these methods this study focused on Sol Gel process. Nano Alumina ( Al2O3) were synthesized by 0.1 M AlCl3 Ethanolic Solution. The aim of this present work is to carry out characterization that includes X-ray Diffraction, FTIR (Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy) , SEM (Scanning Electron Microscope) and thus comparing synthesized nanoparticle to the standard one. The aim of this article to reflect on the current state and future prospects especially the potential of the above mentioned technique for Nano adsorption in the chemical industries.
