Synthesis of Iron Oxide Nanoparticles by Thermal Decomposition Approach

Abstract:

Article Preview

An easy onepot reaction for the synthesis of iron oxide nanoparticles is reported. Thermal decomposition of iron acetyl acetonate (Fe(acac)3) in diphenyl ether, in the presence of oleic acid and oleyl amine followed by calcination, leads to the formation of iron oxide nanoparticles. Variation of concentration of the oleyl amine during the synthesis affects the morphology of the iron oxide nanoparticles produced.
