Abstract:
Magnetite nanoparticles were prepared by a simple precipitation method between FeCl3.6H2O and FeCl2.4H2O. X-ray diffraction (XRD) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) are used to study the structural and physical properties of magnetite nanoparticles. The magnetic properties of the product were also investigated using an alternating gradient force magnetometer (AGFM). The Fe3O4 nanoparticles exhibit ferrimagnetic behaviour at room temperature, with a saturation magnetization of 31 emu/g and a coercivity of 2 Oe. It has been observed that, as synthesized Fe3O4 NPs exhibited photocatalytic activity for degradation of organic dyes such as methyl orange efficiently.
