Polyol-Made Spinel Ferrite Nanoparticles—Local Structure and Operating Conditions: NiFe2O4 as a Case Study

Abstract

We report the effect of a polyol-mediated annealing on nickel ferrite nanoparticles. By combining X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction, and 57 Fe Mössbauer spectrometry, we showed that whereas the as-prepared nanoparticles (NFO) are stoichiometric, the annealed ones (a-NFO) are not, since Ni 0-based crystals precipitate. Nickel depletion from the spinel lattice and reduction in the polyol solvent are accompanied with an important cation migration. Indeed, thanks to Mössbauer hyperfine structure analysis, we evidenced that the cation distribution in NFO departs from the thermodynamically stable inverse spinel structure with a concentration of tetrahedrally coordinated Ni 2+ of 20 wt-% (A sites). After annealing, and nickel demixing, originated very probably from the A sites of NFO lattice, the spinel phase accommodates with cation and anion vacancies, leading to the (Fe 3+ 0.84□0.16) A [Ni 2+ 0.80 Fe 3+ 1.16□0.04 ] B O 4-0.20 formula, meaning that the applied polyol-mediated treatment is not so trivial.
