Iron phosphate nanorods were synthesized via a novel facile route. The structure, composition, and morphology of the prepared material were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD) and transmission electron microscope (TEM), respectively. The diffraction lines were indexed to the hexagonal structure. The diameter of these nanorods is about in the range of 20–30 nm and the length 50–100 nm. The preferential growth direction of the prepared material was the [100]. The reaction mechanism for the synthesis of FePO4 nanorods was also primarily discussed. Compared to the bulky and the irregular nanoparticles, the nanometer ones will be more fascinating for application in many areas.
