The influence of trace water concentration on iron oxide nanoparticle size

Author affiliations

Abstract

The size of iron oxide nanoparticles, prepared from the thermal decomposition of Fe(CO)5 in a high boiling solvent in the presence of oleic acid, is affected by water concentration, giving particles from sizes of 5.6 nm to as low as 2.2 nm.
