Title: Facile Synthesis of Spinel Ferrites with Enhanced Magnetic Properties from Two Intractable Metallurgical Resources: Zinc-Bearing Dust and Nickel Laterite Ore

Abstract

Nickel laterite ore and zinc-bearing dust are multi-metal-associated and intractable resources. Comprehensive and cooperative utilization of zinc-bearing dust and nickel laterite ore for the preparation of spinel ferrites with enhanced magnetic properties by a facile process was proposed. The structure and magnetic properties of as-prepared spinel ferrites were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), Raman spectroscopy, and Physical Property Measurement System (PPMS). The effect of mass ratios of zinc-bearing dust to nickel laterite ore, calcination temperature, and Zn substitution content on the as-prepared samples was investigated in detail. A single phase of Zn-substituted spinel ferrites (x= 0.00, 0.10, 0.20, and 0.30) could be obtained when the mass ratios were controlled at 1:0.4, 1:4:1.8, 1:2:1.5, and 1:1:1.2 after being calcined at 900 {sup ∘}C for 30 min, respectively. The magnetic property tests present that the as-prepared spinel ferrite exhibits enhanced magnetic properties with the saturation magnetization (Ms) value of 66.8 emu g{sup − 1} and the coercivity (Hc) value of 26 Oe when the mass ratio was controlled at 1:1:1.2. This research could provide an effective way to transfer two intractable resources into soft magnetic materials.
