Abstract [en]

The influence of the post-synthesis adsorption of Co(II) ions on the structural and magnetic properties of maghemite (gamma-Fe2O3) nanoparticles with a mean particle size of about 10 nm has been investigated. It is shown that the step-wise adsorption of Co( II) can controllably increase the blocking temperature, T-B, of the system up to 60 K with respect to that of untreated particles, while neither the particle size nor the particle size distribution are significantly modified. This is accompanied by a four-fold increase in the coercivity, H-C, at low temperatures. Using a selective leaching of the previously adsorbed Co(II) ions the T-B and H-C values of the pristine gamma-Fe2O3 nanoparticles are recovered. Hence, a reversible and controllable tailoring of the magnetic properties (e.g., T-B and H-C) of the gamma-Fe2O3 nanoparticles can be achieved by a simple adsorption and desorption process of Co( II) ions after their synthesis.
