Microwave Synthesis And Characterization Of Nanocrystalline Mn-Zn Ferrites

Surender Kumar, Tukaram J. Shinde, Pramod N. Vasambekar

Volume 4, Issue 5, Page 373-377 | DOI: 10.5185/amlett.2012.10429

Keywords: Ferrites; microwave synthesis; XRD; FTIR; SEM.

Abstract: 

Powder diffraction, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy  and scanning electron microscopy were used to characterize the spinel structure of nanocrystalline Ferrites with composition Mn1-xZnxFe2O4 (x = 0.2, 0.4, 0.6 and 0.8)  prepared by oxalate coprecipitation technique and followed by microwave heating of precursors. Effect of composition on the lattice constant, x-ray density, crystallite size was studied. Crystallite size and x-ray density increases with increase in Zinc content.  The face centered cubic spinel structure has undergone deviation from ideality. A correlation exists between splitting of infrared absorption bands and lowering of composition dependent crystalline symmetry. This preparation technique could be used for synthesis of materials which use microwave transparent precursors. Copyright © 2013 VBRI press.
