Synthesis and Characterization of CoFe2O4 Nanoparticles by Glycothermal Process
CoFe2O4 nanoparticles were prepared in ethylene glycol solution under mild temperature and pressure conditions by precipitation from metal nitrates. The average size of the synthesized CoFe2O4 nanoparticles was in the range of 5 to 10, and they were narrowly distributed in the crystalline phase. Their magnetic property was of superparamagnetic character at room temperature. The effect of synthesis parameters is discussed such as the pH of starting solutions and reaction temperature.
