Abstract

In this study, oleylamine (OAm) capped FeMnyCoyFe2-2yO4 (0.0 <= y <= 0.4) nanocomposites (NCs) were prepared via the polyol route and the impact of bimetallic Co3+ and Mn3+ ions on the structural and magnetic properties of Fe3O4 was investigated. The complete characterization of FeMnyCoyFe2-2yO4@OAm NCs were done by different techniques such as XRD, SEM, TGA, FT-IR, TEM, and VSM. XRD analyses proved the successful formation of mono-phase MnFe2O4 spinel cubic products free from any impurity. The average crystallite sizes were calculated in the range of 9.4-26.4 nm using Sherrer's formula. Both SEM and TEM results confirmed that products are nanoparticles like structures having spherical morphology with small agglomeration. Ms continued to decrease up to Co3+ and Mn3+ content of y = 0.4. Although Mossbauer analysis reveals that the nanocomposites consist three magnetic sextets and superparamagnetic particles are also formed for Fe3O4, Co0.2Mn0.2Fe2.6O4 and Co0.4Mn0.4Fe2.2O4. Cation distributions calculation was reported that Co3+ ions prefer to replace Fe2+ ions on tetrahedral side up to all the concentration while Mn3+ ions prefer to replace Fe3+ ions on the octahedral.
