Syntheses of Ferrite Nanoparticles Using Ultrasound Irradiation


Article Preview

Sonochemically assisted co-precipitation has been used to prepare nanosized manganesezinc- ferrite powder. A suspension of constituent hydroxides was ultrasonically irradiated for various times with high-intensity ultrasound radiation (20 kHz, 750 W) using a direct-immersion titanium horn. The average grain size and magnetization of the synthesized MnZn-ferrite nanoparticles gradually increases with the time of ultrasonic irradiation.
