Title: Microwave-assisted synthesis and characterization of nickel ferrite nanoparticles

Nickel ferrite nanoparticles (NiFe{sub 2}O{sub 4}) were successfully prepared by microwave-assisted combustion method (MWAC) using citric Electron acid as a chelating agent. NiFe{sub 2}O{sub 4} nanoparticles were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD) pattern, Scanning Microscopy (SEM), Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) and UV-Visible techniques. XRD analysis revealed that NiFe{sub 2}O{sub 4} nanoparticles have spinel cubic structure with the average crystalline size of 26.38ā€…nm. SEM analysis revealed random and porous structural morphology of particles and FTIR showed absorption bands related to octahedral and tetrahedral sites, in the range 400ā€“600cm{sup āˆ’1} which strongly favor the formation of NiFe{sub 2}O{sub 4} nanoparticles. The optical band gap is determined by UV Visible method and found to be 5.4 eV.
