Abstract

Nanoparticles of NiFe2O4 are synthesized using a chemical route involving reactions of nitrates of Ni and Fe, and citric acid. The particles with size as small as 8 nm do not show any superparamagnetic relaxation in room temperature Mössbauer spectroscopy. This suggests that the particular preparation process yields a magnetic structure where the magnetic moments are strong enough to quench superparamagnetism. Over-occupancy in tetrahedral sites is suggested to be a possible explanation.
