Abstract

The effect of preparation methods on the textural, structural and acid–base properties of nano-sized nickel ferrite oxides was investigated. Several physicochemical methods are used for their characterization. Isopropanol, as a probe molecule, is used to determine acid–base properties. A correlation between textural, structural and acid–base properties of nanomaterials is established.
