The thermally induced solid-state syntheses of γ-Fe2O3 nanoparticles from iron-bearing materials (FeSO4, Fe2(C2O4)3 and almandine garnet) are described. Magnetic properties, particles size and the mechanism of the structural change of γ-Fe2O3 nanoparticles have been investigated using 57Fe Mössbauer spectroscopy, X-ray powder diffraction (XRD) and atomic force microscopy (AFM). γ-Fe2O3 nanoparticles are transformed into hematite via ε-Fe2O3 as the intermediate.
