Nanosize particles (average size similar to 12 nm) of mixed ferrite Mn0.65Zn0.35Fe2O4 were prepared by the hydrothermal precipitation route and studied using x-ray diffraction, transmission electron microscopy, differential scanning calorimetry, magnetization measurements, and Mossbauer spectroscopy. The as-prepared sample was largely ferrimagnetic and, as the sample was annealed at temperatures above 250 degrees C, it gradually became superparamagnetic. This unexpected behavior is explained by assuming that the cation distribution in the nanosize as-prepared sample is in a metastable state and, as the sample is heated, this distribution changes to a more stable state while the grain size remains nearly the same.
