Facile synthesis of CuxZn1−xFe2O4 nanoparticles and their thermo-physical properties evaluation

Abstract

Since the advent of material science, nanomaterials have been the most attractive and alluring research domain of nanotechnology with a variety of applications. Considering the significance of nanomaterials specifically in industrial progressions, the present work demonstrates facile synthesis approach of copper–zinc ferrite nanoparticles and their thermo-physical characterization and evaluation. Analytical grade chemicals were used to synthesize the respective nanoparticles employing the co-precipitation method, with the base solution of NaOH to maintain pH of the solution within range of 12–14. A series of nanoparticles were synthesized varying the amount of copper and zinc precursors, and their thermal and physical properties were evaluated using various analytical tools including XRD (X-ray diffraction), SEM (Scanning Electron Microscope), FTIR (Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy) and thermal constant analyzer.
