Synthesis of monodispersed fcc and fct FePt/FePd nanoparticles by microwave irradiation

Author affiliations

Abstract

A simple microwave heating method has been used for the stoichiometrically controlled synthesis of FePt and FePd nanoparticles using Na2Fe(CO)4 and Pt(acac)2/Pd(acac)2 as the main reactants. By varying the solvents and surfactants, the microwave assisted reactions have shown a significant advantage for the rapid production of monodisperse fcc FePt nanoparticle metal alloys which can be converted to the fct phase at low temperatures (364 °C). Microwave reactions at high pressure (closed system) have led to the direct formation of a mixture of fcc and fct phase FePt nanoparticles. Room temperature structural and magnetic properties of materials have been characterized by X-ray diffraction, HRTEM and magnetic measurements. The onset of ordering has been investigated by in situ high temperature X-ray diffraction studies.
