Aerosol Synthesis and Growth Mechanism of Magnetic Iron Nanoparticles


Article Preview

Magnetic oxide-coated iron nanoparticles with the mean size ranging from 6 to 75 nm were synthesized by aerosol method using iron carbonyl as a precursor under the flowing inert gas atmosphere. Oxide shells were formed by passivation of as-prepared iron particles. The influence of experimental parameters on the nanoparticles’ microstructure, phase composition and growth behavior as well as magnetic properties were investigated and discussed in this study.
