Title: Magnetic-field-induced synthesis of Fe{sub 3}O{sub 4} nanorods by a gas–liquid interfacial process: Microstructure control, magnetic and photocatalytic properties

Highlights: • Fe{sub 3}O{sub 4} nanorods were synthesized via a MFI gas–liquid interfacial route. • The morphology of the Fe{sub 3}O{sub 4} nanoparticle can be changed during its growth process. • MF render Fe{sub 3}O{sub 4} nanorods higher degree of crystallinity and better magnetic property. - Abstract: In this paper, we designed a magnetic field (MF) induced gas–liquid interface route to synthesize magnetic Fe{sub 3}O{sub 4} nanorods (NRs). The results showed that the MF can significantly affect the morphology of the particles. In this original method, only relatively inexpensive and environmental chemicals were used. The structure and morphology of the Fe{sub 3}O{sub 4} NRs were characterized by X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy and vibrating sample magnetometry technique. The crystal growth mechanisms in the magnetic field induced process were expounded in detail. The as-synthesized Fe{sub 3}O{sub 4} NRs were successfully used as a catalytic carrier for the photo degradation of phenol.
