Influence of Synthesis Temperature on Magnetic and Adsorption Properties of Nickel–Zinc Ferrite Nanoparticles by Microwave Hydrothermal Method
The microwave hydrothermal method was applied in the synthesis of Ni0.5Zn0.5Fe2 O4 ferrite nanoparticle. X-ray diffraction (XRD), infrared spectroscopy (IR) were conducted to characterize the as-prepared samples. The experiment results revealed the as-prepared nanoparticle was 8.50-10.3 nm in size with various synthesis temperatures from 40-120°C, and synthesis temperature had effects on the magnetic and adsorption properties of Ni0.5Zn0.5Fe2 O4. The saturation magnetization values increased from 22.6 to 90.8 emu g-1 with synthesis temperature increasing. Moreover, synthesis temperature also influences the adsorption capacity of methyl orange (MO) on Ni0.5Zn0.5Fe2 O4. The as-prepared Ni0.5Zn0.5Fe2 O4 showed the highest adsorption capacity of MO in the current work when synthesis temperature was 80°C, which was contributed to the more adsorption site distributed on the nanoparticle.
