Zn(1 – x)MnxO (x = 0.086 and 0.090) nanoparticles have been successfully synthesized. This research aims to make Zn(1 – x)MnxO nanoparticles and observe the effect of Mn2+ doping ion concentration in ZnO material by coprecipitation method, which is then followed by heat treatment at 350 C for 3 h. Zn(1 – x)MnxO nanoparticles produced were then characterized using XRD, SEM, VSM and FTIR equipment. XRD data were generated using the Rietveld program. The XRD refinement results show that the substitution of Mn2+ ions into ZnO can change the behavior of the lattice parameters and atomic density. The shape and particle size of Zn(1 – x)MnxO nanoparticle samples change with the addition of Mn2+ ion doping. Likewise, there is a change in magnetic properties such as magnetic remanent (Mr) of Zn(1 – x)MnxO nanoparticles as a result of substitution with the addition of Mn2+ ions.
