Abstract

Strontium hexaferrite is a hard magnetic material and has been extensively used as a permanent magnet. In this work a novel sol-gel auto-combustion method was used to synthesize ultra fine strontium hexaferrite. The investigations show that the model of combustion changes with the change of basic agent. The XRD results show that using ammonia or trimethylamine does not change the composition of the combustion product and it also shows that the surfactant burns completely during the combustion process. The average crystallite size of hexaferrite powders was also measured by X-ray line broadening technique employing Scherrer formula. The results show that changing the basic agent makes the particle size of the final product much smaller. Basic agent also affects the formation temperature of the single phase strontium hexaferrite.
