Barium Hexaferrite Prepared by Hydrothermal Synthesis


Article Preview

Nanoparticles of barium hexaferrite were prepared by controlled hydrothermal synthesis at 280oC. During the synthesis, the composition of the precursor and the suspension concentration were controlled. The as-synthesized crystalline barium hexaferrite platelets of about 50 nm in length and 5 nm in thickness exhibited a saturation magnetization of 40 emu/g.
