The present paper addresses the synthesis and characterization of La2O3Nano rods using Precipitation Method. We use Acetamide as fuel, CTAB as Surfactant and DMF as solvent in precipitation method. FTIR spectroscopy was done for observing the presence of La-O bond. The synthesized lanthanum oxide nanoparticles were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), Raman Spectra, field emission gun Scanning Electron Microscopy (FEG-SEM) with EDS spectra and High resolution Transmission Electron Microscopy (HR-TEM) for morphological percentage of metal and particle size determination. In XRD analysis, the average nanorods sizes were near 38 nm. The lanthanum nano-rods prepared by Precipitation Method are thick and short with diameter of~30 nm and length of ~200 nm.
