In this study, nickel oxide nanoparticle is produced by two different synthesis techniques, namely extrusion-dripping/sol-gel and hydrothermal processing using chitosan biopolymer as templating material. The properties of synthesized nanoparticles were examined through various characterisation techniques. Furthermore, the catalytic performance of both materials were compared based on the photocatalytic degradation of methylene blue dye.
