Solgel Self-Combustion Synthesis and Characterization of La0.8Sr0.2Mn0.8Fe0.2O3
La0.8Sr0.2Mn0.8Fe0.2O3 has been synthesized by solgel synthesis employing the EDTA complexing method and solgel self combustion using PVA as fuel and nitrates as oxidizing agent. The effect of these techniques on the phase purity, crystallinity and particle size has been studied. Different techniques including X-Ray Diffraction (XRD), Scanning electron microscopy (SEM), Thermo gravimetric/Differential thermal analysis (TG/DTA) and Inductively Coupled Plasma Emission Spectrometry (ICP-ES) have been utilized for the characterization of the synthesized materials.
