Synthesis of SiO2-Coated ZnMnFe2O4 Nanospheres with Improved Magnetic Properties
Abstract:A core–shell structured composite, SiO2 coated ZnMnFe2O4 spinel ferrite nanoparticles (average diameter of ∼80 nm), was prepared by hydrolysis of tetraethyl orthosilicate (TEOS) in the presence of ZnMnFe2O4 nanoparticles (average diameter of ∼10 nm)synthesized by a hydrothermal method. The obtained samples were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), and field emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM). The magnetic measurements were carried out on a vibrating sample magnetometer (VSM), and the measurement results indicate that the core–shell samples possess better magnetic properties at room temperature, compared with paramagnetic colloids with a magnetic core by a coprecipitation method. These core–shell nanospherical particles with self-assembly under additional magnetic fields could have potential application in biomedical systems.
