Sol-Gel Derived Ferrites: Synthesis and Characterization


Article Preview

In the present work, the sinterability and formation of nanosized yttrium iron garnet (Y3Fe5O12), yttrium perovskite ferrite (YFeO3), cobalt, nickel and zinc iron spinel (CoFe2O4, NiFe2O4 and ZnFe2O4, respectively) powders by an aqueous sol-gel processes are investigated. The phase purity of synthesized nano-compounds was characterized by powder X-ray diffraction analysis (XRD). The microstructural evolution and morphological features of obtained transition metal ferrites were studied by scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The possible application of these nanosized transition metal ferrites as ceramic pigments was demonstrated.
