Nanoparticles made from a Fe2O3/WO3 powder mixture were synthesized by the sol-precipitation method. Calcined Fe2O3/WO3 powder was compacted and then reduced in a hydrogen atmosphere at 800–1000 °C. Complete reduction of the nanoparticles was achieved resulting in a nanocrystalline (27 nm) homogenous Fe–W alloy. The reduction was studied by thermogravimetric analysis to determine the kinetics and reaction mechanism. The Arrhenius equation with mathematical formulations for the gas–solid reaction was applied to calculate the activation energy values and to determine the controlling reaction mechanism. The synthesized oxide mixture and the various reduction products were characterized by XRD, SEM, TEM, and VSM to determine the effect of hydrogen reduction on the microstructure, magnetic properties, and reaction kinetics of the Fe–W alloy.
