The nanostructured material properties were showing surprisingly different from the bulk materials. Among these nanostructured materials nanocomposites are of great technological importance because of their small size and high surface to volume ratio. Due to these reason the nanocomposites were used in various potential applications such as optoelectronics, microelectronics, water purification, paints, biomedical field and different sensor fabrication. Present work concentrates on synthesis and characterization of MgO/TiO2 nanocomposites by Microwave-assisted method using ionic liquid as the initial precursor and different temperature effects were investigated on it. The obtained MgO/ TiO2 nanocomposites have been characterized by X-Ray Diffraction (XRD), particle size analyser (PSA), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), Fourier transform infrared spectrometer (FTIR), thermo gravimetric/differential thermal analyzer (TG/DTA) and Keithley electric meter for average crystallite size, average particle size, morphological studies, bond analysis, thermal stability and resistance respectively.
