Narrow size distribution nickel ferrite nanoparticles with average particle size of around 6 nm has been synthesized via rapid thermo-decomposition method in the presence of oleylamine in solution which acted as neutralizing, stabilizing and reducing agent OAm coated NiFe2O4 NPs. X-ray powder diffraction (XRD), Fourier Transform Infrared Spectra (FT-IR), Thermal Gravimetric Analysis (TGA), Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), Transmission electron microscopy (TEM), Vibrating Simple Magnetometer (VSM) and also Mossbauer Spectroscopy were used for structural, morphological, spectroscopic and magnetic characterization of the product. The XRD analysis revealed the formation of single phase nickel ferrite with Fd-3m space group. Both FT-IR and TGA analyses confirmed the formation of desired nano composite. FT-IR analysis also showed characteristic IR absorption bands of the spinel nickel ferrite phase and oleylamine. TEM and SEM analysis showed that product have almost spherical structural morphology. TEM images showed that NiFe2O4 nanoparticles have narrow size distribution and Energy Dispersive X-ray (EDX) analysis confirmed the presence of metal ions in the required stoichiometric ratio. Superparamagnetic property of the product was confirmed by VSM. From Fe-57 Mossbauer spectroscopy data, the variation in line width, isomer shift, quadrupole splitting and hyperfine magnetic field values have been determined. The Mossbauer spectra for OAm coated NiFe2O4 NPs. is consisting of one paramagnetic central doublets and one magnetic Zeeman sextet. Finally, the synthetic procedure can be extended to the preparation of high quality metal or alloy nanoparticles. (C) 2016 Published by Elsevier Ltd
