Nanocrystalline Ni1-xZnxFe2O4 ferrites with 0 ≤ x ≤ 1 were prepared by sprayingcoprecipitation method. The microstructure was investigated by TG-DSC, XRD, SEM, TEM and BET. Magnetic properties were measured with vibrating sample magnetometer at room temperature. The results showed that uniform and fine nanocrystalline Ni1-xZnxFe2O4 ferrites are obtained. The grain size of sample calcined at 600°C for 1.5h is about 30nm. There are a few agglomerates with average sizes below 100nm. The specific saturation magnetization, Ms, of the sample increases with increasing Zn2+ concent x at room temperature, and the maximum Ms is 66.8 A·m2·kg-1 as the Zn2+ content x is around 0.5mol. As calcining temperature increased from 400°C to 1050°C, the Ms of Ni0.5Zn0.5Fe2O4 ferrite increases from 40.2 A·m2·kg-1 to 75.6 A·m2·kg-1. The coercivity maximum is about 5.97 kA·m-1 as its critical grain size is about 62.0nm. The relation between coercivity and grain size for nanocrystalline Ni0.5Zn0.5Fe2O4 ferrite may be explained based on random anisotropy theory.
