Nanophase Ni1xZnxFe2O4 (x=0, 0.5, 1.0) samples were prepared by chemically precipitating hydroxides followed by hydrothermal processing. The products were characterized by X-ray diffraction and M.ossbauer spectroscopy. Ferrite formation was found to be quite sensitive to the procedures adopted for preparing the hydroxide slurry prior to hydrothermal treatment. Nickel ferrite could be prepared in pure phase by co-precipitation as well as by mixing separately precipitated hydroxides. However, Ni0.5Zn0.5Fe2O4 could only be prepared by co-precipitation. Leaving small amount of sodium in the slurry seems to obstruct pure phase formation of Ni0.5Zn0.5Fe2O4 and results in partial formation of a-Fe2O3. A similar effect is observed in zinc ferrite.
