The combustion method has been utilized to generate cobalt spinel ferrite nanoparticles. The generated nanoparticles were ball milled for different times. Physical and chemical properties of the nanoparticles were characterized by X- ray diffraction (XRD), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), transmission electron microscope (TEM), and vibrating sample magnetometer (VSM). Crystalline structure of the nanoparticles was stable after ball milling. FTIR showed that oxygen-metal bonding was stronger after ball milling. Moreover, the ball milled nanoparticles magnetically were harder than the nanoparticle without ball milling.
