Silica nano particles have been prepared by hydro fluoric acid leaching of sodium meta-silicate solution characterised its surface morphology by SEM image. The size and size distribution of these nanoparticles has also been examined using static light scattering instrument; the average diameter of the particles is found 176 nm. The FTIR spectrum of the powder confirms the presence of silica.
