The magnetic α-Fe nanoparticles were carried out using two-preparation methods that include solution phase metal salt reduction and organometallic precursor decomposition. Under the different reaction conditions such as precursor and reaction time, the magnetic properties of α-Fe nanoparticles were studied. The size of nanoparticle was confirmed by transmission electron microscope (TEM) images. The magnetic properties were characterized with saturation magnetization(Ms) from hysteresis loop by vibrating sample magnetometer (VSM). The crystallinity and structure of α-Fe nanoparticles was investigated by X-ray diffraction (XRD).
