Abstract

CoZn ferrite nanoparticles have been synthesized using carboxylate- hydrazine precursor via thermal decomposition route. The prepared precursor Co0.8Zn0.2Fe2(PhAc)3(N2H4)3 was characterized by  hydrazine, metal analyses, infrared spectral and thermal analyses. Using appropriate annealing conditions, Co0.8Zn0.2Fe2O4 nanoparticles of average size 13 nm were synthesized by thermal treatment of the precursor. The nanoparticles were characterized by using X-ray diffraction (XRD), Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM), High Resolution Transmission Electron Microscope (HRTEM) and Selected Area Electron Diffraction (SAED) techniques. The details of synthesis and characterization of the nanoparticles are reported in this paper.
