Title: Improvement in elastic properties of CuAl{sub 0.4}Fe{sub 1.6}O{sub 4} spinel ferrite by rapid thermal cooling

Abstract

The elastic properties of spinel ferrite composition, CuAl{sub 0.4}Fe{sub 1.6}O{sub 4}, quenched from final sintering temperature of 1373 K to liquid nitrogen temperature (∼ 80K) have been studied by means of X-ray powder diffractometry and pulse echo-overlap technique (9 MHz) at 300 K. The magnitude of elastic constants is found to enhance by 15% compared to slowly-cooled counterpart. The observed mechanical strengthening has been discussed in the light of compressive stress on the surface, with tensile stresses at interior regions and corresponding changes in structural parameters. The B{sub o}/G{sub o} ratio indicates the brittle nature of CuAl{sub 0.4}Fe{sub 1.6}O{sub 4}.

  • Graphical abstract: Uniform spinel Mg–Cu ferrite hollow spheres were prepared using carbon spheres as templates. Solid spinel Mg{sub 0.5}Cu{sub 0.5}Fe{sub 2}O{sub 4} ferrite nanocrystals were also prepared by sol–gel auto-combustion, hydrothermal and coprecipitation methods for comparison. The samples were found to be efficient catalysts for oxidation of styrene using hydrogen peroxide as oxidant. Especially, in the case of Mg{sub 0.5}Cu{sub 0.5}Fe{sub 2}O{sub 4} hollow spheres, obvious improvement on catalytic activity was observed and 21.2% of styrene conversion and 75.2% of selectivity for benzaldehyde were obtained at 80 °C for 6 h reaction in water. The catalyst can be magnetically separatedmore » easily for reuse and no obvious loss of activity was observed when reused in six consecutive runs. - Highlights: • Uniform spinel ferrite hollow spheres were prepared by a simple method. • The catalyst has been proved much more efficient for styrene oxidation than the reported analogues. • The catalyst can be easily separated by external magnetic field and has exhibited excellent reusability. • The catalytic system is environmentally friendly. - Abstract: Uniform spinel Mg–Cu ferrite hollow spheres were prepared using carbon spheres as templates. For comparison, solid Mg–Cu ferrite nanocrystals were also prepared by sol–gel auto-combustion, hydrothermal and coprecipitation methods. All the samples were characterized by Fourier transform infrared spectrophotometry (FT-IR), X-ray diffractometry (XRD), transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and N{sub 2} physisorption. The samples were found to be efficient catalysts for oxidation of styrene using hydrogen peroxide as oxidant. Especially, in the case of Mg{sub 0.5}Cu{sub 0.5}Fe{sub 2}O{sub 4} hollow spheres, obvious improvement on catalytic activity was observed, and 21.2% of styrene conversion and 75.2% of selectivity for benzaldehyde were obtained at 80 °C for 6 h reaction in water.

  • Lanthanide ions have been doped into cobalt spinel ferrites using an oil-in-water micellar method to form CoLn{sub 0.12}Fe{sub 1.88}O{sub 4} nanoparticles with Ln=Ce, Sm, Eu, Gd, Dy, or Er. Doping with lanthanide ions (Ln{sup III}) modulates the magnetic properties of cobalt spinel ferrite nanoparticles. In particular cases of Gd{sup 3+} or Dy{sup 3+} ions, a dramatic increase in the blocking temperature and coercivity is observed. Indeed, the introduction of only 4% of Gd{sup 3+} ions increases the blocking temperature {similar_to}100 K and the coercivity 60%. Initial studies on the magnetic properties of these doped nanoparticles clearly demonstrate that the relationshipmore » between the modulation of magnetic properties and the nature of doped Ln{sup III} ions is interesting but very complex. {copyright} 2001 American Institute of Physics.« less
  • Nonstoichiometry of (Mg{sub 0.22}Mn{sub 0.07}Fe{sub 0.71}){sub 3{minus}{delta}}O{sub 4} ferrite has been measured in the temperature range of 1,000--1,200 C as a function of oxygen activity (a{sub O{sub 2}}) using a solid state coulometric titration technique. At a given temperature, the nonstoichiometry ({delta}) was found to vary with the oxygen activity as {delta} = [V]{sup 0}{center_dot}a{sub O{sub 2}}{sup 2/3}{minus}[I]{sup 0}{center_dot}a{sub O{sub 2}}{sup {minus}2/3} where [V]{sup 0} and [I]{sup 0} are constants. This a{sub O{sub 2}}-dependence of {delta} was explained in terms of Frenkel disorder, i.e., cation vacancy and interstitial. From the temperature dependence of the defect constants ([V]{sup 0} and [I]{supmore » 0}) and the oxygen activity for the stoichiometric composition ({delta} = 0), thermodynamic quantities such as enthalpies for the defect formation reactions and relative partial molar enthalpy and entropy of oxygen were calculated. 35 refs., 5 figs., 4 tabs.« less
  • In this paper we show that spinel ferrite nanocrystals (NiFe{sub 2}O{sub 4}, and CoFe{sub 2}O{sub 4}) can be texturally embedded inside a ZnO matrix by ion implantation and post-annealing. The two kinds of ferrites show different magnetic properties, e.g. coercivity and magnetization. Anomalous Hall effect and positive magnetoresistance have been observed. Our study suggests a ferrimagnet/semiconductor hybrid system for potential applications in magneto-electronics. This hybrid system can be tuned by selecting different transition metal ions (from Mn to Zn) to obtain various magnetic and electronic properties.
