Abstract

The Zinc Nickel Cobalt Ferrite (ZNCF) Zn0.95−xNi0.05CoxFe2O4, for x= 0.01, 0.02, 0.03, 0.04, 0.05 and 0.06 were prepared by co-precipitation. XRD patterns show spinel ferrite with a cubic structure. The lattice parameter was found to increase linearly with cobalt concentration (x). FESEM gave the grain sizes in the range 1.61-1.38nm and particle size in the range 28-21 nm for x = 0.01 to 0.06. The porosity was in the range 92.6-92.9 %. The occupancy of metal ions in the two interstitial sites affects the exchange interaction. The higher grain size and lower porosity have a positive impact on magnetic saturation which makes them applicable in recording media.
