Preparation of Iron Oxide Nanoparticles by a Pyrosol Technique


Article Preview

Iron oxide nanoparticles were prepared from an iron nitrate solution by a pyrosol technique. The precursor solution was atomized by a mist generator in order to form an aerosol which was brought into a tube furnace by a controlled flowing air stream. The pyrolysis of the aerosol was occurred to form the particles inside the furnace at 350 °C. Scanning electron microscopy images have shown that a mean diameter of the particles is in good agreement with the third root of the precursor concentration. X-ray diffraction patterns have revealed that the main peaks from the samples are corresponding to the α-Fe2O3 phase.
