Study on Synthesizing and Characterizing of Zinc Ferrite Nanoparticles


Article Preview

Zinc ferrite (ZnFe2O4) crystalline was prepared via co-precipitation method, followed by calcinations at various temperatures from 400 to 600 . Poly (vinyl pyrrolidone) (PVP) was used as a stabilizer to prevent the particles from agglomeration. The variation of crystallite size has been investigated using X-ray powder diffraction (XRD), transmission electron microscopy(TEM), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR), scanning electron microscope(SEM), and a recipe has been developed for the preparation of nano ZnFe2O4 with 6.7nm size and complete crystallization.
